About

This work is scored for 10 piece ensemble of winds, brass, percussion and slides from the Lascaux Caves.

"It opened with an arresting effect I'd never heard before: Art Baron and Scott Robinson blowing through conch shells, played a series of converging glissandi in opposition directions, creating wild beat patterns...Even had you closed your eyes, it was like the piece suddenly emerged from its lair and took over the atmosphere". Gann, Village Voice, New York
