about

[53:38] total duration

"...remarkably rich in harmonies, timbres, all sorts of holes and contours, and tons of sheer musical drama...Hill 3 explores both the percussive possibilities of stringed instruments, and the intervening silences. Hill 2 is remarkable for its density – it sounds almost like a 20th Century Avant-Classical piece being played backwards. Hill 5 has all sorts of activity: ghostly harmonics, mechanized whirrings and rustlings, and a highly warped, but heroically Paganini esque, violin cadenza...Hill Music is highly subversive, and a ceaselessly challenging listen... --Jazz Weekly
