Monty Adkins’s “Shadows and Reflections” reviewed by The Wire

Two pieces by the British composer, which grew out of a collaboration with the painter Andy Fullalove. They worked together on an installation at Bradford Cathedral, and Adkins created these pieces to expand on the meditative and light-filled quality of that show. The music is based on extended organ tones, and like classic recordings by Terry Riley or Steve Reich (among others) the closer you listen the more textures you’ll find revealed. Really a beautiful cassette, equals meditative and powerful. Byron Coley
