Avant-percussionist and Assistant Professor of Music at UCF Thad Anderson has been a longtime live favorite here at Orlando Weekly, whether playing solo or in ensembles. And as of a few days ago, we now have a piece of recorded music from Anderson to hold us over until his next show, courtesy of New Hampshire-based contemporary classical imprint Ravello Records.

Ravello on May 10 released Lines & Spaces, a full-length from Anderson available in both physical and digital format. The Ravello Records site promises an adventurous listen:



The 15 tracks on Thad Anderson’s LINES & SPACES are from his Lines series, based on his compositional technique called “duration lines” that create both structure and polyrhythmic interest. Anderson integrates traditional instruments with fixed media, live processing, and tuned metals to create pieces that are infinitely malleable.

Stream the track "Withheld" from Lines & Spaces via Soundcloud below.
