Iluminaciones - Review by Stanley Fefferman

From: NMC's Roger Reynolds and his Protégés

Juan Campoverde of Ecuador and Chicago was encouraged by Reynolds to look to other forms, mainly literature, painting and pre-Colombian patterns in pottery and textiles as continuous sources of musical content.  The sounds of his Illuminations (2007) come in bursts—swarms of winged things with the voices of oboe, cello, clarinet, piano, vibes and strings float like reflections on moving water, suggesting lines of light etched by acid on a metallic space.
