Alarm Will Sound

Add Date: September 15

Artist: Alarm Will Sound

Album: a/rhythmia

Label: Nonesuch

Genre: Instrumental/Experimental

Comments: Described by the New York Times as "one of the most vital and original ensembles on the American music scene", 20-member group Alarm Will Sound, led by artistic director Alan Pierson, is back with their latest release--the concept album a/rhythmia. They perform "14 pieces spanning six centuries, all of which explore the concept of a/rhythmia: "want of rhythm of regularity, specifically of the pulse"." Alarm Will Sound, despite being potentially difficult to fit onto most playlists, is filled with talented musicians who certainly live up to this albums' challenge.
