Berenson-Lumen

Composer/pianist Adam Berenson makes an eclectic array of music: classical compositions, controlled improvisations, electronic music, and jazz. Lumen, his latest release for Dream Play Records, collects two CDs of his works.

Spanning more than two decades of documentation, it features performers Bob Moses, Bill Marconi, Scott Barnum, Eric Hofbauer, and JACK Quartet. Berenson is at the center of the proceedings, playing piano, prepared piano, synthesizers, percussion, and live electronics. Reveling in diversity, Berenson’s variety of approaches yields several compelling pieces. For those who want to sample a bit of these before buying the discs, his Soundcloud page provides a wealth of audio examples. I enjoyed experiencing the mix of music Lumen has on offer.
