Notes and Editorial Reviews

Known for her innovative electronic and instrumental works, American visionary composer Anne LeBaron and her SACRED THEORY OF THE EARTH take us on a journey into the realm of time and its boundless universe. LeBaron again tackles a subject that presents the listener with subtle programmatic overtones throughout. Immersing the listener in her every whim, all four chamber works here deal with the essence of time, whether it be standing still, or dancing with an element of surprise.
This, of course, is a rather surreal approach, but LeBaron's often arcane musical and structural ideas are an organic part of her compositions. Fascinated with metric modulation and abstract meter, she seeks to abandon any rhythmic security in her music,
Read more embracing unrestricted time. As one can imagine, listening to LeBaron is challenging, but also gratifying. One might find folk tunes or medieval hymns hidden beneath the music's surface, or a waltz-like rhythm juxtaposed alongside dense harmonies. LeBaron's music is an intricately woven combination of sounds that may upset your preconceptions. Read less
