"these works have a profound life beyond the novelty of a live experience. The music on this recording is some of the most innovative, imaginative, and impressive electroacoustic music being created today... Drever guides the listener through a sonic interpretation of three cities: Glasgow, Frankfurt, and Exeter. Mr. Drever has composed each of these soundscape pieces in a way that tells a non-linear narrative of their respective cities of origin. Instead of leading the listener on a tour and showing the features of a city consecutively, he uses the power of recording and editing to split the trip into brief impressions that all contribute to a holistic experience of a city’s sounds and character that could not have been achieved with a linear narrative.
