THE ELEANOR HOVDA COLLECTION (2012)

"eleanor hovda (1940-2009) was a fairly obscure american composer of post-minimal, early spectral works that spanned in time from the 1960s through the 2000s. after studying under such luminaries as karlheinz stockhausen and kenneth gaburo, she began to probe the inner qualities of sound, forging a body of highly subtle, often sparse, spatial music – most often in the context of modern dance performances. inspired by the likes of john cage, morton feldman, pauline oliveros and japanese music, all of her own work totally flows and breathes, sounding for all the world like the best dream state free improvisation – even though it’s all meticulously composed."
