1992 release. Simplicity and clarity have always been among Tom Johnson's chief concerns as a composer. They led him to research number theory, particularly by Pascal, Fermat, and Euclid. These sources suggested musical structures somewhat more complicated than those he had used before. Music for 88 contains nine sections (six of which are on this recording), each of which is a musical demonstration of a mathematical phenomenon.
