The title of Valérie Milot s seventh CD is both a nod to the circle of valued musical colleagues she has worked with over the years and a reference to the loop as a musical concept, a seemingly simple melodic or rhythmical motif that serves as both framework and source of inspiration. This new album by the harpist features complementary approaches, and the works range from John Cage s ethereal In a Landscape to Frank Zappa s turbulent G-Spot Tornado. For Steve Reich’s Electric Counterpoint, Valérie Milot recorded all the parts herself, showcasing the distinctive colours of the harp s different registers and its exceptional resonance. A wonderful and daring album by one the world’s most talented harpists.
