Delights and Dangers of Ambiguity (Improvisations 2017-2022) by Buck Curran

Buck Curran's new album Delights and Dangers of Ambiguity (Improvisations 2017 - 2022) includes improvisations with Helena Espvall (Espers) on Cello (Gemini Sun, Gemini Rising), Jodi Pedrali (Slow Air) and with Japanese composer Hiroya Miura on piano (Mugen no Umi no Iro). The title of the album comes from a phrase used by Leonard Bernstein during the Charles Eliot Norton Lectures in 1973, in which he discusses the relevance of musical dissonance through the use of chromaticism: The Unanswered Question (Six talks at Harvard 1973) Lecture 4: The Delights and Dangers of Ambiguity. The album is available at Obsolete Recordings Bandcamp , Spotify, and Apple Music
