      PROCESS AND PASSION
      ROGER REYNOLDS
      Mark Menzies, violin; Hugh Livingston, cello
      (Pogus 21032-2)

      A special 2 CDs for the price of 1 deal - with CD 1 (stereo) music encoded
      for CD 2 (binaural - headphone only listening), the listener gets their own
      personal surround sound-for-the-head version - the same music - but
      different!!!

      This is a recording that explores the "extra"-ordinary potential of the CD
      not only as a carrier of traditionally recorded instrumental sound (CD 1),
      but also offering a different view through binaural encoding of the same
      materials spatialized (CD 2).

      First you are presented with two solo compositions-Kokoro and Focus a beam,
      emptied of thinking, outward...-and the duo Process and Passion, in an
      acoustic recording, albeit with each instrument deliberately confined to
      one side of the stereo field. Then all three pieces are presented with
      extravagant sound processing, using spatialization concepts and binaural
      encoding, revealing unsuspected depths and energies within the sound of
      each of the pieces' ideas and unfolding.
