'Heavy', from composer William Ryan Fritch is a bombastic and ever-moving work that draws equally from the forward-thinking arrangements of modern chamber music as it does the snarling, imposing presence of Garage Rock. The whirring barrage of sounds and textures that percolate through it’s six songs are both wildly varying and effortlessly assimilated.

Bass clarinets and french horns growl and moan in concert with bursts of analog synths and electric guitars. Thundering primitive rhythms crunch and grind while strings, harps and flutes scurry about in the wake of each percussive stomp and crack. Using only live, acoustic, and un-sequenced instrumentation, Fritch contorts and bastardizes familiar styles and idioms much like electronic musicians do through sampling; by oversimplifying their forms, altering their tone and texture, and tangling them together in irregular and complex ways.
