Notes and Editorial Reviews

The two works on this release are some of the most groundbreaking pieces that have been written in recent years. The first work, CybOrgan, is scored for organ, strings, and infrared-camera-controlled live electronics. The electronics convert movement to sound in a random, unpredictable manner. The second piece, Hyperchromatic Counterpoint, utilizes a quarter-tone accordion which allows the sound to wander at will. Veli Kujala has a versatile repertoire, that includes everything the most structured of Baroque works to the most contemporary free improvisational works and hyper-complex compositions.
