The City the Wind Swept Away
Haunting, fragile music for trombones, strings and piano. Music that is both motionless and moving forward with a strange sense of inevitability. (23-minute CD single) "Beautiful and evocative work . . . very atmospheric music." --John Schaefer, WNYC, New Sounds
Attentiveness to the integrity of slowly passing sound events can be a strangely moving experience. It is so here. -- Christopher Ballantine,
I've listened to it often while reading McCarthy's "All the Pretty Horses"...to evoke those sad and majestic landscapes. -- Eugenio Maggi,
Seems to linger in the air (and the ear)...Delicate and open throughout. -- Molly Sheridan,
The music of desolate places--maybe the sound happening when a city is indeed swept away by the wind. -- Frans de Waard,

This is beautifully austere music, and extremely well done. It reminds me of some of the modern pieces coming out of Skandanavia (e.g., Rene Eespere) but with a touch more lyricism. A great introduction to a modern composer I would never have discovered myself.
