Paul Lansky: Alphabet Book (VOL. 8)
Featuring artwork and animations by Grady Klein Paul Lansky's latest Bridge release is a suite of ten brand new pieces. Lansky writes: "The inspiration came from the TV show, Sesame Street, where the celebration of letters and numbers, those atoms of daily life, is often clothed in lively musical garb." Lansky asked the graphic artist Grady Klein to animate some of the music, and the result is a charming and quirky enhanced CD–full of imaginative and playful visual and sound art. The disc is playable on CD players and computers, including Windows and Macintosh platforms. Included in the 32-page full color booklet is a complete printing of Grady Klein's Alphabet Book, the graphic work upon which the CD's animation is based. Paul Lansky was called "America's foremost electronic composer" by Playboy Magazine, and this, his eighth release on Bridge, shows him expanding in new directions.
“This isn’t flat academia, and it certainly isn’t elitist condescension towards everyday phenomena—Lansky’s music goes for a much subtler infiltration of your senses than Kindergarten ever did.” - Pitchfork Media
