100 Names, Rebekah Heller (2013)

About the Album

 Focusing on electro-acoustic music that pushes the boundaries of extended technique, the repertoire on 100 Names suggests influences of spectral music, noise styles, and performance art, by mining the bassoon’s uniquely rich wealth of multiphonics, unconventional timbres, and incorporating auxiliary instruments.

Du Yun’s 10pm, ixtab is a dramatic pile-up of bassoon tracks and recorded found sound. It’s a speedy, intense roller coaster ride that slams to a halt as abruptly as it began.
