Scott Johnson :  Americans

Released May 2010
cd time - 46:03
US Price $16.00
A long awaited CD featuring a major new composition by one of America’s greatest and most elusive composers from the early days of postmodernism and postminimalism. A pioneering voice in the new relationship being forged between the classical tradition and popular culture, Scott’s influential infusion of the amplified sounds of rock into traditionally scored compositions is an approach that is rapidly spreading among today’s young composers. Drawing upon a decade of rarely heard music, Americans is yet another masterpiece by this exciting musical maverick.
