"A suite of fiendishly complex compositions for mixed real and virtual resources. The real are Bob Drake, Djorge Delibasic, Pegja Milosavljevic and Chris Cutler who, between them, cover electric guitar, bass, drums and virtuoso violin, but it's mainly Stevan here, who plays all kinds of keyboards, strings, double bass and zither, on top of samples and software. In this collection of highly concentrated compositions, we are presented with three thoroughly-composed and finely articulated pieces: 'Concerto Grosso' (for keyboards, string instruments and CPU), 'The Cold Peace Counterpoints,' and 'Five Bagatelles for a Polyhistor.' Those familiar with Tickmayer's earlier recordings, or with the Science Group, will have some idea of what to expect -- a rare co-mingling of high European art music (Tickmayer studied with both György Kurtàg and Louis Andriessen), various East European folk musics, experimental rock, post-rock and computer-assisted electronic composition. These are intense, emotionally and philosophically-driven pieces that demand attention -- and reward it when given."
