  • About This Album

    Written in 1984, "De Stijl is a snarling, clotted, brilliant piece of work," says the Globe and Mail. "[A]ll musical lines are warped, twisting continually between the pure geometries of conceptual music and the abrupt graffiti of jazz." M is for Man, Music, Mozart (1991), written for jazz singer and ensemble for a video film by Peter Greenaway, contains "a riveting minimalist score," wrote the Wall Street Journal, "with driving saxophones and bold brass band."
