Review of diamond dust

New York Classical Review writes about diamond dust from the performance by Curious Chamber Players at MATA festival in New York, April 2015.

“Johan Svensson’s diamond dust”…”barely touched on standard pitches, which, when heard, appeared as an emergent property of the shifting timbres.
