(CKR 014) 

"Delicately woven patterns of intricate beauty."

4/5 stars - The Guardian

Pioneering composer and improviser Zeena Parkins presents LACE, a new album of compositions inspired and guided by the stitches and patterning of lace. The album is available digitally and as a very limited edition box set. The box set contains an LP as well as beautifully designed graphic scores to three LACE compositions, an extensive interview with arts scholar Jenn Joy and a poem by much-beloved downtown NY poet Steve Dalachinsky written on the occasion of the performance of "LACE 1." The amazing performers on the album include William Winant (percussion), James Fei (electronics), Maggie Parkins (cello) and TILT Brass Sextet.
