A music concerned for, as the author writes in the
disc notes, “… the importance of silence in
music…”. This work is conceived not “for organ”
but, really, for “organ and silence”, as the silence
is a fundamental part of it, and it’s not possible to
give it up. It’s an attempt, as the author explain “
to permit as much silence as possible, without
allowing the music to actually stop”.
Tom Johnson is one of the masters of minimalism,
but he combines this with rigorous logic. His work,
free from false glitters, defines, better that any
other one, the sense of a research the goes
beyond the strict genre definitions, and become
poetic application of original ideas.
Recorded in Nerinx, in Kentucky, spring 2001.
Wesley Roberts, organ.
