Abdicate Cell entry:
"Melody and hubbub play their respective parts on the nature of the compositions present on this e.p. The experimental musician from Serbia is here inspired by asthma seizures, the percussive effects of the instruments that forged the pieces, and their creative potential.Ideas are expressed sonically through a series of dissonant musings ; but dissonance is heavily subjected to the melodic mainframe.The title itself - "."- argues the desired length of a musical piece. Is making of a 10-second composition more rewarding and inspirational than an 8-minute one?"

- track 11:Eric Schwartz-classical composer from Brooklyn
Eric Schwartz has studied composition at the Cleveland Institute of Music, New York University, and both the Interlochen and Aspen Summer Music Festivals. Past teachers have included Margaret Brouwer, Donald Erb, George Tsontakis, and Randy Woolf. Primarily interested in a synthesis of musical archetypes, Schwartz is always at work on a variety of genre bending projects. Formative influences include an amalgamation of the glam metal of the late 80's, and the baroque intellectualism of Arnold Schoenberg. More recently, an interest in a variety of different musical styles has carved a path towards new directions both in musical construction and philosophy. His music has been performed at various venues throughout New York City, from The Knitting Factory to Merkin Concert Hall, as well as such far flung places as Bucharest, Romania and Thunder Bay, Ontario. He has received awards and grants from ASCAP, The Society for New Music, The Puffin Foundation, The Cleveland Chamber Symphony, and The Ohio Federation of College Music Clubs. Schwartz has served on the faculties of New York University, Hunter College, and the Lucy Moses Music School, and is the artistic director of the Brooklyn, NY based experimental music group Forecast Music (forecastmusic.org). His debut CD "24 Ways of Looking at a Piano", recently named one of the top classical CDs of 2005 by All Music Guide, is available now from Centaur Records (http://www.centaurrecords.com).

The track 11 is a deconstructed piece from his "24 ways of looking at the piano"
