Kenneth Kirschner CD / Disquiet.com Liner Notes

The new, two-CD set from New York City-based composer Kenneth Kirschner is due out in mid-November on the 12k record label, run by Taylor Deupree. Titled Filaments & Voids, the album collects four pieces (three on the first CD, one on the second CD) marked by silence, several of them consisting of precisely constructed sound objects that are heard in sequence, framed by quietude.

I’ve long been an admirer of Kirschner and his work, and I’m pleased to report that I wrote the liner notes for the release. It was an honor to have been asked to participate.

Visit the label at 12k.com and Kirschner at kennethkirschner.com. In addition, I interviewed the composer for an article (“Music for Shuffling”) that appeared on Disquiet.com on October 6, 2005.
