Zilzal

Ayman Fanouse (guitar, bouzouki). Jason Kao Hwang (violin, viola

In cart Not available Out of stock

Zilzal is the recorded debut of the duo of Ayman Fanous (acoustic guitar/ bouzouki) and Jason Hwang (violin/ viola). The name of both the album and title track is the Arabic word for earthquake. And this music represents the collision of several musical worlds. Forged in New York’s downtown music scene of the late 1990’s, this duo has developed a unique improvisational language that spans many streams of musical culture, aesthetics, and compositional philosophy. In its inter-cultural egalitarianism, it could only have been made in America.

Spontaneous River: Symphony of Souls

Jason Kao Hwang

In cart Not available Out of stock

Jason Kao Hwang’s Spontaneous River, based in New York City, is an orchestra of 37 string improvisers plus drum set. It is only in recent years that more and more string players have engaged in the art of improvisational music. Spontaneous River is an ensemble and a community that represents this emerging movement. The power of Spontaneous River is drawn from both the sonic unity of strings and the undeniable individualism of each musician’s “voice.”

Mr. Hwang’s composition, Symphony of Souls is a spontaneous flow of notated passages and conducted improvisations that sing stories of life journey through an abundant sound emanating from blues, jazz, classical and world sources.

As Dr. Thomas Stanley writes in the liner notes, “The orchestra is then summoned to explore soul as both a nexus of dialog and as the motive force compelling action and interaction. “I felt in this one unified sound, I could hear the voice of each soul,” Jason recalls, “The music was a whole tree, but you could hear each individual leaf in motion.”
