V.A. - RESONANCE. STEEL PAN IN THE 21ST CENTURY (CD)


"since its humble beginnings on the streets of trinidad, the steel pan has risen to international attention as one of the most unique and versatile percussion instruments in the world. the steel pan, also referred to as a steel drum, possesses a rich, somber, and oftentimes haunting sonority that can be heard in calypso music, pop songs, concert works and most recently - modern electronic composition. this album was created by distributing a recorded session of steel pan performance by pannist darren dyke. an array of composers from around the world digitally abstracted these sessions to create their own original compositions. with an impressive compendium presented here, the works on this record explore a variety of sonic spaces from textural ambience to aggressive and abrasive sound design." (label info) Feat. Yoshio Machida, Mike Vernusky, Cory Allen, Thomas Dempster, Sam Pluta and many more.
