My Education/Theta Naught

Sound Mass (Differential Records)

An improv collaboration with surprisingly cohesive results, Sound Mass captures a five-act drama with what sounds like a post-rock chamber orchestra. "Careful With That Saw, Ryan" unfolds with a fleeting grace and the Pink Floyd echoes expected from Austin's My Education, but Utah's Theta Naught lends an eerie heaviness to the grand swell of "Nonet" and "Communion." Flourishes of Americana in "Salt Lake Film Society" make a fine outro for this imaginative score. ***
