The Continuing Story of Counterpoint by David Borden

Album Description


The Continuing Story Of Counterpoint is a remarkable 12 part musical cycle that Borden composed between 1976-87. Lasting 3 hours, Cuneiform has released this seminal work on 3 CDs, each containing 4 parts. The music is a pleasing and highly listenable mixture of classical forms, dense textures, strict counterpoint, and high energy electronics. AUDIO Magazine had this to say about the series: "When released in its entirety, this series may stand as the 'Goldberg Variations' of minimalism, a canon of work that defines a style and an era."

Mother Mallard are one of those groups who can say in full honesty that they were doing it before anybody. They were performing works by Cage, Reilly, Glass, Ashley, and Reich when such renowned composers were yet unknown. Such a skilled ensemble!

Mother Mallard (and Cuneiform) are dear to my heart. What a treat to find them here at the FMA. Thank you, ISSUE Project Room, Cuneiform, Mr. Borden, and Mother Mallard!
