AllMusic Review by

A "series of musical rituals involved...with the poetic roots of erotic experience...Nageire is an oriental aesthetic principle of non-development, of non-linear..leap...it uses constant and extreme surprise..leaping into unknown material...for the flexibility of the mind...one drop of water can unhinge my throat into miracles of swallowing..the sudden shiver of a delicate paper rattle or an unusually sensitive tonguing on a brass instrument becomes transparency utterly alive." (from notes by the composer) For brass ensemble with the composer playing on many of her 100 percussion instruments..lovely silence...surprising sounds.
