Plastic Facts covers extensive ground–from the swelling harmonies and sweeping canons of Richard Carrick’s Harmonixity, to the searing high notes of Michael Djupstrom’s Test. Marcelo Lazcano’s Ser finds the whisper range of the saxophone while Plastic Facts, the title track, explores a textural cityscape built on multiphonics.
