NNA Tapes (Matthewdavid, Kalbells) reunite with Lea Bertucci for the NYC composer/performer’s latest LP. The four tracks of Metal Aether run the gauntlet of contemporary classical techniques while demonstrating the composer’s command of whatever she turns her hand to. Beginning with the busy, Steve Reich-indebted woodwind work of ‘Patterns For Alto’, the record hinges on its two lengthy middle sections. ‘Accumulations’ is a thirteen minute mish-mash of humming chamber instruments and a screeching violin anti-solo, while the drones of ‘Sustain And Dissolve’ do as the title says. Things close out with the distorted dawn chorus of ‘At Dawn’.
