Randy Raine-Reusch

Za Disc has released an intriguing new CD of New Music for Asian Zithers entitled BAMBOO, SILK, AND STONE featuring Canadian composer/performer Randy Raine-Reusch on Korean kayageum, Chinese zheng, Vietnamese dan bau, Japanese ichigenkin, and Japanese nigenkin, with Jon Gibson, Stuart Dempster, Jin Hi Kin, Barry Truax and William O. Smith.

Raine-Reusch approaches these instruments in a startling new way that retains the power and essence of these instruments while exploring new techniques, tunings, timbres and relationships.

This CD contains two eclectro-acoustic works, and well as solo and ensemble pieces.

[Bob's note: Randy came to the Creative Music Studio from Vancouver in 1975, playing the Appalchian mountain dulcimer as his main instrument.]
