"Shuffle Play is designed to be played in the 'random' or 'shuffle' mode of a CD player, reconfiguring the story it tells with each listening. However, because not all players have this feature, consideration was also given to the normal sequencing of tracks. It comprises 28 meditations on the history of recordings, including several tracks that use cylinder recordings from the earliest decade of recorded sound (1888-1900)- many of them previously unpublished- direct from the Edison archives in New Jersey. The idea was to develop the material from as many angles as possible: free improvisation, musique concrete, post-war composition, AACM-derived strategies, and pop music, to name a few." Features: Steve Adams, Beth Custer, Ben Goldberg, Dan Plonsey, Trevor Dunn, Gino Robair, Myles Boisen, etc.
