CD Release: Janet Feder's "this close"

CD Release: Janet Feder + Paul Fowler release "leavings"

leavings – Janet Feder + Paul Fowler

Leavings is a feature film score, most of which didn't end up in the film (hence, it's name) which is fine by us, because it all ended up here! Janet plays baritone guitar(s), ukulele (thank you Elaine DeFalco), banjo (thank you Colin Bricker) and a few other things that aren't typically used as musical instruments. Paul was at the controls the whole way; finding and manipulating sounds, playing a variety of keyboards and also a beautiful wooden flute.

Review of "Shakespeare's Love"


So many new choral works are similar...There are exceptions, of course, Arvo Pärt, Krzysztof Penderecki, Tarik O’Regan, to name but three. Now, however, there is another exception, and that is Paul Fowler. I have never heard a new choral composer who is so completely original. He uses incredible cascading harmonies that constantly shift - everything seems to move all the time without ever resting. It reminded me very much of how clouds constantly shift and change. This new work is one of the most haunting pieces of music that I have heard in some time.”
