Bold, compelling music with a distinctive voice.

Craig Walsh, born in New Jersey in 1971, is a composer on the rise, widely performed across North America and Europe. He is also a composer plugged into new media while simultaneously writing music for traditional acoustic instruments. He is associate professor at the University of Arizona and has received numerous awards and fellowships. The works on this recording represent more than a decade of Walsh's acoustic chamber music. This is bold, compelling music with a distinctive voice that draws the listener in. Walsh has a knack for instrumental combinations that pack a great deal of information into textures that are spare yet timbrally rich. His music is well conceived while pushing the boundaries of performance techniques.

Review:
"[Craig Walsh's] music is free, whimsical, thoughtful, and atonal without completely avoiding tonality." (American Record Guide)

"Walsh seems to be a composer coming into his own. The energy in this music, at its best, gives one a buzz. I like the way he's moving, and I'll be happy to hear more." (Fanfare)
