The Electro-Acoustic Band -- featuring Phil Aaberg, Paul Hanson & Amy Knoles, David Abel (violin), Julie Steinberg (piano), Joel Davel (marimba lumina), Paul Dresher (Electric Guitar & Quadrachord). "His' Concerto for Violin & Electro-Acoustic Band, for violinist David Abel, travels from the rhythmically interlocked intensity in the 1st movement, Cage Machine (driven by samples of John Cage's invention, the prepared piano) to the slow moving and harmonically complex 2nd movement, 'Chorale Times Two', whose highlight is an extended and rhapsodic violin melody. 'In The Name(less)' is for two invented instruments. The Quadrachord, Dresher's invention, has four 160 inch strings and is a kind of a giant electro-acoustic slide guitar that can be plucked, bowed, prepared or hammered."
