Taktus - Glass Houses No. 1

You can read my general notes on the festival here. Earlier this year, Greg Harrison and Jonny Smith released the excellent Glass Houses for Marimba, which rearranges Ann Southam's hauntingly-beautiful minimal piano variations for two marimbas. This fusion of the rigourous compositions and the instruments' warm tones created a stately island of calm in the middle of the afternoon's hustle-bustle. This in situ recording, complete with background mutterings and vehicular roars, shows the music enfolding itself into its environment.
