5.0 out of 5 stars Music with spiritual meaning
by Grady Harp - Reviewed in the United States on July 3, 2020
Composer/musician Jason Kao Hwang presents six of his compositions on this new recording: ‘Each composition is a progression of gestures, songs, movements and locations that bring participants into a state of discovery and compassion. Within these Human Rites, individual voices are empowered to be fully expressive so that each moment is unpredictable and deeply intentional. This psychic intensity, both sacred and sacrificial, provokes a heightened awareness that unifies Listeners and Musicians within a spiritual entertainment. As we hear ourselves within music we become Music, which is no longer a performance but an affirmation of justice and celebration of life.’
The trio - Jason Kao Hwang - composer/violin/viola, Andrew Drury - drum set, Ken Filiano - string bass
The tracks - Words Asleep Spoken Awake, Part 1, Words Asleep Spoken Awake, Part 2, Conscious Concave Concrete, 2 AM, Battle for the Indelible Truth, and Defiance.
An elegant concert for our troubled times. - Grady Harp Read on Amazon
