My New Favourite Composer for the week. I came across her name as her piece Sula was last year's selection by the UNESCO International Rostrum of Composers. Her site includes .ram and .mp3 format extracts of some of her pieces, and I like them a lot. Rolling waves of sound, chant inspiration (although, to much relief, not copycat versions of her compatriot Arvo Pärt's chant-inspired pieces), a gritty, tectonic approach to sound and structure, Eastern Europe.... In other words, My Kind of Thing. I can't see any mentions of commercial recordings at this stage, but I'm sure Sula at least will be available before too long.
