    This is Mode’s second release from Tim Hodgkinson, a founding member of the politically and musically radical group Henry Cow. A skilled improviser and performer, the works on this CD for chamber ensembles reflect Hodgkinson’s 'composed' music side, while still providing room for improvisation and experimentation. The performers are leading European and American improvisers and improvising new music ensembles. Liner notes by Tim Hodgkinson.
    Born in 1949, a graduate in social anthropology at Cambridge, co-founder of the politically and musically radical group Henry Cow in 1968, Tim Hodgkinson has followed a restless and critical creative path. To composition he brings a long and unique experience in improv and ethnomusicology. He has published articles on such subjects as musique concrète and on the aesthetic problems arising from the impact of new technology on contemporary music making.
