Here is the debut album by electronic and tape music composer Ruth Anderson (1928-2019). Anderson was a curious, playful, and thoughtful composer interested in the healing properties of sound, and was also one of the first women to set up an electronic music studio in the USA, after originally training as a flautist. Here gathers together her microtonal electronics, works with poetry, drone, meditative long-form works and mischievous proto-plunderphonics, on an album that is playful, meditative and bold in its minimalist approach to sound.
Arc Light Editions worked directly with Anderson and her partner the composer Annea Lockwood on Here, but Ruth passed away at the end of 2019, before she was able to see her first solo release out in the world. Here hopes to reinsert Anderson as a trailblazer in electronic music.

Is the sound of any instrument more profound than that of the cello in the hands of a master? (Well, maybe the viola da gamba.) Here is exquisite cello music from the 14th to the 21st centuries played by Charles Curtis, including four compositions of his own. "Unfinished Song" will make you a believer. John Simms

With the entanglement and interaction of noise and musical tone, we seem to have traveled through the jungle infested by ghosts, and witnessed a new universe being reborn in this strange chaos and harmony. Through this recording, Jim O’Rourke reconstructed the order of sound in a sense. alain.proust
