Notes and Editorial Reviews

This set includes 1 blu-ray audio CD playable on blu-ray players only and 1 standard CD playable on all CD players.

American Aggregate, the follow up to Inscape’s GRAMMY® nominated debut album Sprung Rhythm on the Sono Luminus label, explores the rich and varied sounds of American music in the 21st century. From the mechanized world of our cities to the natural beauty of our landscapes, from the sounds of jazz and rock to indigenous folk music, the picture of contemporary classical music is revealing and diverse. The works contained on this album reflect American culture, landscape, and environment as expressed through the distinctly American voices of seven young composers.

 Another great one December 14, 2014 By Hugh F. See All My Reviews "I have the Inscape album Sprung Rhythm and was really excited when this album came out. It has works by some of the same composers (DeCusatis) I liked a lot from Sprung Rhythm, but a lot of other pieces by new composers I have not heard of. The playing on this sounds fantastic!"
