 Truely interesting, ear grabbing March 21, 2013 By jay hamilton (Seattle , WA) See All My Reviews "This cd was my introduction to Weir and I've continued to be interested in her music ever since (15years?). Each piece has something that is unexpected yet not alien. Taken apart I think some of the sound colours may seem alien but in context they nearly all work to the listener's benefit. Begin here and continue with her instrumental music and choral music too. It's all got great music in it." Report Abuse
