- kraig grady: beyond the windows perhaps among the podcorn
(2007, cd, usa, transparency)
When I received this album from Transparency a little while ago, I had never heard of Kraig Grady. A little research revealed that Kraig Grady is an American composer and sound artist who is known for composing music for microtonal instruments.
On "Beyond The Windows..." Kraig Grady investigates overtones and resonance as his ensemble plays long, stretched notes. The album consists of one piece. Actually, it consists of one note on which another tone is imposed. This second note can take over, and other notes can be added.
An impressive experiment.

Much of Kraig Grady's music is releated to "The North American Embassy Of The Anaphoria Island", a non-profit organisation the culture of a fictional island.
