about

First recording of Frank Denyer's extraordinary hour-long piece for large ensemble: 'The Fish that became the Sun (Songs of the Dispossessed)', composed between 1991 and 1996. The ensemble includes a huge number of home-made percussion instruments made from discarded materials, as well as obscure instruments such as eunuch flutes, ocarinas and crumhorns. The album comes with a booklet with notes by Frank Denyer and an essay by Michael Turnbull
