Michael Gordon's new album based on letters between Vincent Van Gogh and his brother Theo, doubles as Alarm Will Sound's follow-up to their album Acoustica: Music of Aphex Twin (CA21028) which was placed in the top 25 of Billboard's classical-crossover chart. Gordon has written numerous well-known orchestral works, including Decasia (CA21008), a multimedia orchestral work
with film by Bill Morrison.
Alan Pierson of the unique 20-member band,Alarm Will Sound, says about Van Gogh: "I wasn't much of a Vincent Van Gogh fan when I first heard the piece, but I was very moved by the story that Michael Gordon tells of the artist's life-his adolescent anxieties, professional challenges, and a kind of transcendence that comes with his eventual institutionalization.There's a directness and intimacy that Michael brings to VanGogh's story by sharing it entirely through Van Gogh's private letters.And the immediacy of those words intensifies Van Gogh's already staggering story."

“Like the Dutch artist's fragile mental condition, Gordon's music often appeals to be on the edge of chaos but never quite loses control.”
