John Luther Adams wrote the highly enthusiastic Introduction. The next issue of Gramophone will review the CD, and Vital Weekly has praised it as “a great release” and possibly Garland’s “best work.”

Commissioned by and dedicated to percussionist John Lane, the composition depicts the 24-hour day cycle in five movements. Each movement is a monochromatic study, more about resonance and space than melody or harmony: mid-day (Chinese drums); afternoon (rice bowls); after dark (triangles); late (glockenspiel); early morning (tubular bells).

“Employing just one musician and a limited array of instruments, Garland reminds us of the magic all around us, and the imperative to rediscover our proper place
in the miraculous and mysterious
dance of life on this earth.”
– John Luther Adams.

“Garland is an artist who knows what he’s doing, and then does it — repeatedly, each time out.
He’s a marvelous artist;
I admire his work a lot.”
– Harold Budd

“He has sometimes been classed as
a minimalist, but Garland’s economy
and radical consonance are manifestations
of his own spatial sensitivity
and clarity of attention.”
Wire Magazine

“An avatar of an experimental American tradition [and] a composer
of mesmerizing music”
– Kyle Gann
