5.0 out of 5 stars Accidental Pleasures December 14, 1999
Format:Audio CD
While using Tower's listening station for classical music, I thought I selected a Phillip Glass CD. When I heard the first section of Gordon's work I was transfixed, I stood there listening well into the second track.
I had to have this CD. Imagine my delight to find this was a new artist I had not heard before. I hope I will find more work by Gordon to purchase soon.
While bearing some resemblence to Glass's cycling movements, this album combines more variety of instruments and moods. And yes I am also a fan of the horns on track 3, unique and enchanting.

4.0 out of 5 stars Powerful and atmospheric. June 3, 1999
Format:Audio CD
The first track, "Weather One," has the force of an impending, violent storm. The quick, cutting sounds of the violin ensemble remind me a bit of the music from "Psycho." The weakest track is "Weather Three." The air raid sirens are eerie in small doses, but they are nerve-wracking in large ones. The last track, "Weather Four," is my favorite. The violins surge along in a minor key in a rhythm that I can only descibe as something like the rhythm of running.

Stupendous. I love this work. When will it be performed LIVE????? You gotta be open to new ideas. But the first movement is contagious. The sirens gotta go though...Peace.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not like Philip Glass, more like... October 19, 2010

I found this music very reminiscent of John Adams' Shaker Loops with a nod to Steve Reich's Desert Music, a piece that also employed the sound of sirens. This album also reminded me of the work of Johann Johannson, an Icelandic composer. If you are familiar with those pieces or those artists and like them, then this music will appeal to you. Each section is attention-getting. I particularly liked the first and last sections. All the sections blend into one another so it's like a continuous piece of music. I didn't dislike the third section, but I understand people's reluctance to call it enjoyable. I think the sound of sirens (was the composer alluding to a tornado warning perhaps?) is a negative one. It's hard to sit and relax to music when it centers around a universal sound of danger. The pieces are long and develop slowly. Section two is dissonant for the first eight minutes, after which a tonal change occurs that is pleasant. The album ends abruptly, there is no fadeout, something which took me by surprise.
