Still SoundSono Luminus
The final album in Bruce Levingston's three-part series, "Still Sound" contains intimate works featuring world premiere recordings of Pulitzer Prize-winner William Bolcom's "New York Lights" written for Bruce Levingston and Augusta Gross' new works inspired by Satie and Part. Reflecting on his album, Levingston writes, "As I first listened to this collection of intimate, gentle music, I kept thinking how much it evokes a feeling of timelessness and stillness. From the minimal sounds of Arvo Part and Erik Satie to the reflective pieces of Augusta Gross and William Bolcom, each work, their harmonic and rhythmic movement notwithstanding, suggests a kind of spiritual stasis. Even the Romantic works of Schubert and Chopin, with their moments of surging emotion, possess magical, hypnotic qualities that lull the listener into a state of calm. The consistent impression of tranquility and serenity in these beautiful works led me to call the album "Still Sound."
