Ned McGowan

Known for its brutality and humor, the award winning Tools is featured on this compilation of chamber works by composer Ned McGowan. The other pieces, whether for solo flute, marimba duo, recorder and industrial machines or jazz ensemble with Indian percussion, reflect McGowan's deep and forceful expression, combined with great charm and wit. His extensive set of compositional tools is evident within the hushed flute melodies, virtuoso key slap solos, proportional, non-Western and Metal rhythms, dramatic silences, climactic voice solos, melodic tone rows, and orchestral chaos's. An exciting and evocative voice.
