Three extended chamber works performed by the Dan Joseph Ensemble: Tom Chiu (violin), Michael Lowenstern (clarinet), Danny Tunick (percussion), Marija Ilic (harpsichord), Loren Dempster (cello) and the composer on hammer dulcimer.

"Archaea is an intriguing contemporary minimalist album......a sophisticated and beautifully performed personal expression......as vibrant as Phillip Glass's early works: it is fresh, young, and perfectly straddles that fine line of pop new music on which Glass, Riley, Reich, Hassel, Eno, and others rode to fame in the 1960s and '70s......a great way to introduce new composition to younger ears, and to lighten the soul of the jaded listener." Musicworks (Canada)
