Rob Mazurek w/ Exploding Star Electroacoustic Ensemble – The Space Between
Delmark DE 5007
2 Disc CD + DVD Set (2013)
The Space Between is a multi-faceted sound/visual orchestration based on the idea of multiplying forces and the space between these forces. Both macro and micro, this new work (commissioned by Meet the Composer USA) from composer Rob Mazurek and video artist Marianne M. Kim, along with members of Mazurek’s Exploding Star Orchestra, pursues the heavens with the idea of the Indra’s Net, a continuous reflection of, but always changing reality of, our universe and what is not seen or heard. Featuring the dynamic flute of Nicole Mitchell, the Wellesian voice of Damon Locks, and stellar contributions from the other members of the ensemble, along with Marianne M. Kim’s multi-layered visual poem. The Space Between represents a step into the direction of sound as vision / vision as sound. Contains one CD and DVD (DVD audio in PCM 24bit/48kHz stereo, DTS, and Dolby 5.1).
The DVD also contains the special feature Illumination Drone #17, Rob Mazurek’s silent video.
