Three fascinating contemporary classical compositions from Henry Cow alumnus Tim Hodgkinson for flute, oboe, clarinet, trumpet, horn, trombone, violins, violas, cello, bass, piano, percussion, virtual strings, accordion, Siberian frame drums, gongs, viola, electronics, bowed cymbals, lap steel guitar, Yamaha DX21 and bass clarinet -- an iconoclastic hybrid of materials, real, virtual, imaginary and observed that flatter and puzzle the ear, drawing from many disciplines and taking a phenomenological approach to sound. More rock than academe, Tim Hodgkinson studied social anthropology at Cambridge, and co-founded Henry Cow in 1968. He has a long involvement in improvisation, and came back to anthropology in the 1990s to research music and shamanism in Siberia. Hodgkinson works regularly with the Romanian Composer Iancu Dumitrescu's Hyperion Ensemble and his compositions have been performed by numerous ensembles in many European contemporary music festivals. His composition Fragor appeared in the Martin Scorsese film Shutter Island. As a writer, he has published articles and reviews on improvised music, musique concrète, spectralism, the ethnomusicology of shamanism and the aesthetic problems of the impact of new technology on contemporary music. His book, Music And The Myth Of Wholeness was published by MIT press in January 2016.
