Notes and Editorial Reviews

The Perfect Nothing Catalog is the debut album by Alaska-raised and Brooklyn-based composer Conrad Winslow, coproduced with Aaron Roche, featuring electroacoustic works commissioned and recorded by Cadillac Moon Ensemble. Cadillac Moon Ensemble- a uniquely mixed quartet of flute, violin, cello, and percussion- has a long working relationship with Winslow. They have commissioned two ensemble works and one solo percussion work. The Perfect Nothing Catalog is a record of their collaboration. The title of the album and its major half-hour work, composed in 2014, comprises 50 miniatures, obsessively categorized. The structure echoes Caryl Churchill’s 2012 play Love & Information, in which a large thematic arc is drawn by tiny non-repeating Read more scenes. The idea of the work was also inspired by rising installation artist Frank Traynor’s The Perfect Nothing Catalog which interrogates the power of curation and restricted control in the making of things.
