A SHORT HISTORY defines 3 key regions of Rova's musical domain. With The Blocks, Adams continues his fascination with the interplay of chiseled, harmonically dense rhythmic figuration, providing the quartet with a wealth of material to blow thickets of sound and build on the composition's DNA. To the Right of the Blue Wall is Jon Raskin's conceptual vehicle for open field improvisation, which relies heavily on Rova's creative application of its evolving vocabulary, and the layering of compositional elements with the quartet's proprietary memes. Ochs' Certain Space flows from the composer's propensity for epic narratives. The piece unfolds into a succession of 3 settings, each dedicated to, and inspired by, the influential composers Giacinto Scelsi, Cecil Taylor and Morton Feldman.Ochs' long work"Certain Space" was commissioned by Chamber Music America in 2001.
