2014 release. What Was is the first release devoted entirely to the music of Judith Ring. Painterly, sensuous, dark and beautiful music from one of Ireland's most important composers. Ring's work is first and foremost with the pulse in the arm that glides the bow over the string. She does not begin with a highly abstract, one-dimensional idea of that sound in notation. Her process can be described as truly experimental, in the sense of Charles Ives: open, aware, conscious, hopeful. Features performances from some of the finest exponents of new Irish music, including Paul Roe, Kate Ellis, Malachy Robinson, Michelle O'Rourke, Natasha Lohan and Concorde, as well as genre-crossing performers such as Laura Moody and Beau Stocker. "... the Vinko Globokar-esque imaginings of composer Judith Ring..." -- I Care If You Listen Magazine.
