"this disc features music commissioned for the play the empire builders by boris vian. consisting of three long tracks, the music is quiet and meditative, due in part to the fact that it is a soundtrack, and to support the plot and action of the play. this plot and action though is not about comfortable ambience. rather, the sound clearly identifies the play's themes of paranoia, rising tension, and escape. the soundtrack focuses on the psychological turmoil that the play addresses via its characters. the quiet and dark spaces explored on the recording are a successful quest in transmitting the unspoken fear, the unknown, and the doom of complacency experienced by the characters, making the recording able to stand on its own beyond the physical viewing of the play. with: sam dellaria, wolfgang fuchs, steven hess, eric la casa, aram shelton, adam sonderberg, brendan walls, alexander wallner. imagine morton feldman meeting mirror. heavy and glacial."
