Editors’ Notes This brilliant collection of 18 original works by composers and groups from all corners of the globe pays homage to the depth of color, character, and emotion that string instruments are capable of expressing. There’s jittery nervousness in Simon Goff’s “Secret Sitter,” gentle ebb and flow in Bryan Senti’s “Turan,” and a yearning nostalgia in Ceeys’ “November,” captured by solitary cello and piano atop a digital foundation. Throughout, musical boundaries are tested, genres defied. Ambient swirling soundscapes envelop Tobias Preisig’s “Falling,” while Zeynep Ayşe Hatipoğlu’s “Maersk” delivers a crescendoing of sound in its vivid, mesmerizing portrait of a cargo shipyard.
