thirduncle801 this is my favorite of the Sway series. it is also the first to have reeds, and they work really well in this context. I guess you could compare it to Evan Parker's Electro-Acoustic Ensemble, in that there is computer/digital alteration to the sound. but Carl's music is much more warm/organic than Parker. Favorite track: Shroud.
