Flutist Meerenai Shim releases her invigorating second album, The Art of Noise. This year marks one hundred years since Luigi Russolo wrote his landmark Futurist manifesto, The Art of Noises, in which he called upon composers to use all possible sounds when creating new works. Janice Misurell-Mitchell's The Art of Noise for flute and percussion takes Russolo's writings as a starting place for her exciting new duo whose title is used for this CD. Flutist Meerenai Shim shares a wide sonic spectrum with her listeners on this recording from traditional flute/cello/piano trio to Nintendo Gameboy. Five composers (Daniel Felsenfeld, Janice Misurell-Mitchell, Jay C. Batzner, Matthew Joseph Payne, and David E. Farrell) share their music on this recording. These refreshing new works were all composed in the last five years. Meerenai Shim, along with her collaborators, pianist Lori Lack, cellist Paul Rhodes and percussionist Christopher G. Jones, have come together to expertly perform welcome new additions to the ever growing flute repertoire.
