NONEXTRANEOUS SOUNDS – MARIEL ROBERTS – INNOVA RECORDINGS
Mariel’s debut CD, nonextraneous sounds, tests the limits of contemporary cello technique in a group of five exhilarating solo works by five of New York’s “freshest young composers” (TimeOut New York). Two are for cello alone, three incorporate electronics. Each piece on this album lives in a distinct and unique sound world that is like no other. Ultimately this is what the record tries to convey- that contemporary music is fantastically diverse and flexible and changing all the time. An instrument is a tool- and there is truly no limit to the different personalities and voices you can use that tool to convey. Each piece in the collection uses a completely different language- they are all musical languages but each expresses sound in a remarkable and singular way. This album is not just a collection of pieces, but an expression of a city and the distinct artistic community in it.
