A diverse set of music by Bay Area composer Jay Cloidt is performed. Included are works for the Sather Tower carillon, the Eco Ensemble String Quartet, solo piano, a “duet for pianist and piano” with interactive electronics, and music from the music theater work DArc: Woman on fire, for singer and cellist.

Jay Cloidt is a composer and sound designer based in the SF Bay Area. He has collaborated with many groups, beginning with the late Ed Mock’s group and including the Paul Dresher Ensemble, the Margaret Jenkins Dance Company, Joe Goode Performance Group, ODC/San Francisco, Amy X. Neuburg, and Kronos Quartet. His works have been performed extensively by these groups and others in the U.S., Europe, and Asia. A CD of the music from the theater work D’Arc: Woman on Fire, with vocalist Amanda Moody, is available on MinMax Records (MM016). A CD of two of his string quartets, eleven windows and Spectral Evidence, performed by the Cypress String Quartet, is also available on MinMax (MM015). A CD of electronic music, Dark Matter is available on Phthalo (PH42), and a recording of his chamber music and electronic works, Kole Kat Krush, is available on Starkland Records (ST-208). The American Record Guide called Kole Kat Krush “… creative and attention-grabbing … haunting and original”; and the AMG All Music Guide described it as “a wonderful, accessible, and yet challenging album from one of new music's brightest lights.”
