As Glacial, Transcendant Peaks Build, Swell And Recede <br /><br />It's Clear That The Purity Of Sound At Work In Of These Pieces Is Sure To Intrigue Fans Of Branca, Chatham, Glass & Lamonte Young. In His Recent Piece In The Village Voice, Critic Kyle Gann Prophetically Heralded This Burgeoning Genre: <br /><br /><br /><br />'Composers (Writing For Massed Guitar)... Will Soon Pass From <br /><br />Downtown Oddity To Acknowleged Classical Medium'.<br /><br /><br /><br />Blastula's Members Have All Done Time In Heavy-Duty Nyc Outfits Like The Branca Ensemble And Of Cabbages & Kings; Member Eric Hubel Has Also Recently Performed On A Big-League Film Soundtrack Composed By Helmet's Page Hamilton. More To The Point, These Cats Each Know What The Hell They'Re Doing With Those Six Strings.
