Editorial Reviews

Composer/pianist Michael Harrison's Time Loops is the follow up to Revelation, a critically acclaimed Cantaloupe recording from 2007, and features "cello goddess" Maya Beiser and also the Young People's Chorus of New York City. Harrison is known for developingone of the most distinctive musical styles in recent years, utilizing innovative tuning relationships to further develop Just Intonation - an ancient tuning system where the distances between notes are based upon whole number ratios. "Michael's music is perfect for our times," states Maya Beiser. "It's architectural and precise, yet exhilerating and beautiful."

Format: Audio CD
I've been waiting for this album to come out since the Bang on a Can Marathon back in June. That was when I heard Maya Beiser premiere Michael Harrison's Just Ancient Loops. During the BOAC Marathon, I was volunteering at the merchandise table. Immediately after the final, resounding chord of Just Ancient Loops, crowds of people rushed over to see if Cantaloupe had an album with the piece on it for sale. Unfortunately, we had to turn everyone away with the promise that there would be a CD soon. The good news for all those disappointed Marathon-goers is that the wait is finally over.

Called Time Loops, Harrison's new album contains his piece Just Ancient Loops as well as his pieces Raga Prelude I (Yaman) and Hijaz. In addition to works by Harrison, the album also includes two pieces that have greatly influenced the composer: Arvo Part's Spiegel Im Spiegel and the Bach/Gounod Ave Maria. The title track of the album is Harrison's reinterpretation of Ave Maria, which plays a recording of the Bach piano part in reverse while a cello accompanies, playing the retrograde of the Gounod cello melody.

The real draw to Harrison and Beiser's new release is Just Ancient Loops. Following Harrison's practice of using just intonation, the piece is a three-movement masterpiece composed of multi-layered cello tracks. In the piece, Harrison uses raga-inspired drones, minimalist rhythms and textures, and beautiful melodies to encompass us in a wonderful soundscape all inspired by ancient modes. The purity and beauty that is obtained from the cello in this piece is stunning. If I had one issue with Just Ancient Loops, it would be that Harrison explores too much of the beautiful timbre of the cello without delving into the grittier side of the instrument.

The marriage of contemporary and ancient, Western and Eastern, in Michael Harrison's music makes for a beauty both familiar-seeming and uniquely his own. The depth and complexity and sheer beauty of this music merits re-listening many times. This compilation, with its two visitor pieces, is an experience you can fall into, as if into a slow-wheeling night sky.

I've always liked music that had complexity and this most certainly has it. Also, I like relaxing music after a day working in retail hell and this fits the bill, too.

Mr. Harrison's work is generally underappreciated. It possesses both the slightly shifting peace of a Monet blended with the insouciance of urban life...as if the mechanical repetitions in an open factory window were reflected in a puddle.
