Irish composer Carolyn Goodwin makes this six person army of clarinets breathe and freak out like a church organ, or a synthesizer, or six people. One of the many ideas this album presents is the fact of collectivity itself, in that enough instruments of any kind begin to approximate the human voice, once massed together. The level of control and the care in the interplay here? Profound.
