Advance praise for the disc:
"A delightful album" The Wire: Adventures In Modern Music
"Delicate Paths is a very eclectic collection, presenting myriad ideas, but alsoand more cruciallya unique and acute sense of poise, focus, and patience." Musicworks Magazine
Peebles' recent explorations of the Japanese mouth-organ, the sh, include solo and group improvisations, electroacoustic music and a short online film. Delicate Paths' foreword delves into the instrument's connections to ancient Asia: it's history, evolution and present-day connections to people, habitat, animals and culture - including connections to tropical stingless bees. Full foreward with images, music excerpts and film by Toronto artists John Creson, Adam Rosen and Peebles at unsounds 42U. The listening experience is contemplative and sensuous, immersing one in the luminous sound of this traditional instrument, approached in a contemporary way. Media copies available via unsounds.com
