Vierk's music explores texture and microtonality in highly structured pieces that build to swirling high energy intensity. Influenced by minimalism, Japanese Gagaku and Appalachian folk music, Lois Vierk is one of America's great originals. Her first CD for Tzadik is an exciting collection of compositions for string quartet, brass sextet and a dynamic piece for electric guitar, percussion, cello and synthesizer. Definitive performances of some of Vierk's greatest works.
