James Tenney's music has been part of zeitkratzer's repertoire for almost a decade. This CD presents a new recording of Critical Band - Tenney's late classic - with maximum clarity. Also included is the first recording of Harmonium #2. Both works demonstrate the remarkable power and resplendent sharpness which Tenney achieved by composing with pure tunings.

Koan: Having Never Written A Note For Percussion for tam-tam completes this CD with an orgiastic listening experience in the form of a huge crescendo on this wonderfully simple instrument - from whispering to singing, culminating in shrill roaring and blustering ? and it?s dark decay. Tenney?s music as a sensual sound adventure!
