Press Reviews for Tessellatum

New-school violist Sirota has performed with Paul Simon, the National, Arcade Fire and others; she also co-directs the modern chamber ensemble yMusic. On this luminous 38-minute work by Irish composer Donnacha Dennehy, Sirota leads a viola quartet of herself, quadruple-tracked, while Liam Byrne layers 11 tracks of viola de gamba. Together they generate dense harmonic clouds that move around birdlike melodic phrases, which by turn crisscross, then flock to formation. The piece is best experienced as soundtrack to Steven Merten's psychedelic companion film, though it's plenty consciousness-altering on its own. Ambient music for short attention spans.
