Alvin Lucier - Still Lives CD 26090
Music for Piano with Slow Sweep Pure Wave Oscillators (Marilyn Nonken, piano), On the carpet of leaves illuminated by the moon (Ryuko Mizutani, koto), Still Lives (Joseph Kubera, piano).

"In this release, the composer has purely acoustic sounds (single piano tones, less often chords, and briefly, koto) interacting with electronically created, similarly uncomplicated sounds. The magic – and I choose that word carefully – occurs in the mingling. Lucier takes his time, and so should the listener. I can think of little music better suited to the recording medium. The disc’s eponym, in eight parts, serves as a showpiece for the varieties of soul-touching experience Lucier’s seemingly perfunctory systems permit. The composer’s good notes tell the story. Particular congratulations to Tom Hamilton (a fine composer in his own right) for a wonderfully intimate sound.“ - Mike Silverton, "Golden Ear Awards 2002", The Absolute Sound
