New York pianist Yvonne Troxler (b. 1962) recently released a CD of her own compositions, titled Brouhaha, featuring her Glass Farm Ensemble. There is a compositional unity on the album that makes each piece feel like an entry in a musical journal. Never really in-your-face, nor too deeply ethereal, the musical gestures that comprise this music have an almost improvisatory feel to them. The timbral variety and tasteful use of space widen sonic expectations, so that you almost don't realize that the new soundscape is in fact an officially different piece.
