These five works by Hope Lee and David Eagle explore sonic transformation of musical gestures and sonorities. In close collaboration with outstanding interpreters, their music reveals connections between the sound worlds of the chamber and electroacoustic music of our time and the intimate approach to listening in the musical practices of ancient China. Secret of the Seven Stars, the title piece on the CD, was premièred by Toronto’s New Music Concerts. In the Globe and Mail Robert Everett-Green wrote ‘Lee’s distinctive scoring was beautifully transparent, even when thick with independent parts. This clarity, with the silvery upper tones that dominated the piece, gave the music a magical glow from start to finish.’ The solo works on the disc feature the expressive virtuosity of German accordionist Stefan Hussong and Canadian flutist Robert Aitken. The nuances of the interpretation are revealed through close recording and live digital processing immersing the listener in these evocative pieces.
