This is Mode’s second release from Tim Hodgkinson, a founding member of the politically and musically radical group HENRY COW in 1968.

A skilled improviser and performer, the works on this CD for chamber ensembles reflect Hodgkinson’s “composed” music side, while still providing room for improvisation and experimentation.

Performers are leading European and American improvisers and improvising new music ensembles.

Liner notes by Tim Hodgkinson.
