    "A*rray is a massive, deep and absorbing isolation-centered new work from Andy Graydon. The music is as varied as the contributors, ranging from spacey to micro-detailed, blurred to sharp, expansive to tightly held. It's a lot and my interest never flagged, a must for re-examination. Wonderful work. Put aside a few hours and delve in."
    - Brian Olewnick, online review

A*rray is a new series of music compositions based on a moving image score by Andy Graydon. In response to the isolation and distancing imposed by the pandemic, Graydon began in April, 2020 to invite musicians and artists from around the world to play their own solo interpretations of the score, a four-channel video that forms the basis of his installation A* (2019). Graydon sorted these contributions into four-player ensembles, creating seven new 30-minute works. A central theme of the video score is the productive complexity of voices in conflict, and the necessity of dissonance in making meaningful connections. Each piece explores this terrain in unexpected and exciting ways, resulting in the lively variety across the series.

His recordings and layered performances, which integrate diverse field recordings with electro-acoustic compositions, unhinge known sonic territories and open up environments that allow listeners to experience natural (or found) sound in new ways. - Lauren Cornell, "Extract: Portraits of Sound Artists" ... more
