"Through a network of illuminated streets" brings together the best chamber music from Martin Rane Bauck's classical middle period (2013–17) and points towards the 2020s. This music is characterized by drowsy states and subtle humor. It is more mumbled than articulated, and is perhaps reminiscent of staring at falling snow through a window, only to be interrupted by the occasional thud as your forehead crashes against the glass. Poetry.
This recording is Bauck's first collaboration with the award-winning Ensemble neoN, and also includes interpretations from renowned Bauck experts Heather Roche (clarinet) and Ole Martin Huser-Olsen (guitar).
