Claire Chase, described by the New York Times as "the most important flutist of our time," releases her most ambitious recording project to date: four full-length albums of the complete Density 2036 cycles from 2013-2018. The first album in the four-CD compilation features the earliest work in Chase's 23-year commissioning project: works by Marcos Balter, Mario Diaz de Leon, Du Yun, Felipe Lara, George Lewis and Edgard Varèse.

"Meyer Sound’s pioneering Constellation acoustical system made these recordings possible. Constellation creates ideal and flexible acoustical environments in any room or performance venue at the flick of switch, giving performer and audience alike the optimal acoustical environment and performance experience. In these recordings, spanning a five year period, Claire Chase utilized the range of Constellation’s capabilities at Meyer Sound’s Pearson Theatre in Berkeley, California. The recording process is true to a performance: no editing, no post-production. Everything you hear is from a single take, with the perfect sound balance achieved through the magic of Meyer’s Constellation technology. The emotional impact is extraordinary, and is harnessed by the acoustical environment. The results, as you will hear, are remarkable."
