Pianist Reinier van Houdt is possibly the best-kept secret in the Dutch music scene. He makes his own way through music unheard of before and collaborates with leading composers such as Robert Ashley, Walter Marchetti, Michael Pisaro, Francisco López, and Alvin Curran. In Curran’s music, chorales, percussive passages, mathematic patterns, lyric lines, and loose quotes lie as vegetation on an immeasurable field of sound. The name of the new composition is Dead Beats. Luc Ferrari, the composer who wove recorded conversations and buzzing fields into his music is represented by the remarkable and surreal 36 Enfilades for tape recorder and piano.
