Review of Music for Found Objects

Moving away from the conventional percussive music, Stewart plays nine short, and highly diverse pieces of music. Carefully strumming the objects, finding sounds and exploring them. Ringing and sustaining by repetitive playing, this is a great work. The works are placed not in three blocks but mixed together, so that the diversity is maintained throughout this work. Not quite onkyo, as Stewart doesn't use too much silence or play the real drum kit in a different way, but Stewart has his own way of approaching the percussion at hand, and in doing so, he is spot on. Great CD!
