David Haney and Julian Priester have been working together the whole of the 21st century and their music is definitely 21st Century. For this recording, they bring their particular shading of light and dark to a series (13 parts) of improvisations inspired by the sojourns of Ota Benga (b.1884-1916) of the Batwa tribe. Pensive and reflective, the nuanced tension of this music is often breathtaking and always starkly original. Extensive program notes outline the events for this set that David calls "nonreferential music." The intricacies and involvement of this creative improvised music is powerful and remarkable.
