Composer, theoretician, inventor and instrument builder Frank Denyer is a legendary figure in the Harry Partch/Scelsi tradition. His music is utterly unique and intensely personal, often requiring specialized new instruments of his own design and radical playing techniques. Fired City presents six of his most dynamic compositions in definitive performances supervised by the composer himself. Having worked closely with Denyer for many years, The Barton Workshop is unsurpassed in this repertoire and performs it with passion and a meticulous attention to detail. These very special recordings, the group's best, show various sides of this enigmatic composer, making Fired City the best place to enter Denyer's mysterious and imaginative musical world.
