"The new album by composer, performer and installation artist Michael J. Schumacher from New York City after the critically acclaimed "Room Pieces", on the XI label, which was rated best of 2003 for "modern composition" by The Wire magazine. Feat. guest musicians Tim Barnes, Charles Curtis, Donald Miller, Peter Zummo, George Bishop and many more. "Stories" refers to the idea of layering, the process of building a structure by stacking things on top of each other. This procedure is particularly evident in "Room Pieces New York", in which as many as 23 parts play simultaneously. In general, Schumacher's interest is to develop a contemporary form of counterpoint, where each voice maintains its integrity while contributing to a total sound. Listeners are invited to create their own melodies by letting their ears follow the sounds moment by moment, allowing spontaneous pathways linking the various voices to emerge effortlessly."
