about

The two works on this album offer us a portrait of extremes in Jordan Nobles’ output, coming from different time periods with different objectives. Yet even though 15 years separate these pieces, they are unified by common ground rules — namely flexible instrumentation and duration — which have become trademarks of Nobles’ mature music. Pulses (1999) is energetic and rhythmic, tipping the hat to the American minimalist Steve Reich. The work is in a constant state of metric and harmonic modulation, creating dramatic turns from the virtuosic to the dreamlike. By comparison, Chiaroscuro (2014) is an essay on harmonic stasis, meditating on subtly shifting colours, ranges, and articulations: a sonic rendering of the "shadows and light" painting technique from which the piece derives its name. - Mark Takeshi McGregor
