Description: From the composer ~ "Before and After the Tekke" is inspired by Meša Selimović’s book Death and the Dervish, my visit to an 18th century tekke (dervish monastery) at the karstic Buna river spring in Herzegovina, the music idioms of the region, and the sounds of New York City. The piece features tuning of my design woven with tempered intonation. It is dreamed from sounds that I have once known but since forgotten. Violinist Ana Milosavljevic originally commissioned the work. The piece was released on album EVOLUTION (Big Round Records) featuring Cornelius Dufallo on violin, Tony Levin on electric bass and Svjetlana Bukvich on synthesizers. Mastering by Joe Lambert.
