"The spatial effects the composer achieves with her exquisitely refracted music are ceaselessly compelling at the local level. But individual effects were enhanced ... by the cumulative sense that, across the span of the piece, hearing itself had been heightened." -- SF Examiner Kui Dong's first, and perhaps last, release of solo improvisations. Better-known as a composer, Kui Dong's solo improvisations playfully exploit the full range and color of her prepared piano, with a dedication to the detail of each sound that only an accomplished composer could attain. Kui Dong uses piano preparations designed by John Cage as a starting point for her own improvisations.
