The idea of percussion and rhythm is written directly into the title of David Kechley’s new album, Colliding Objects. The result is not a random dodgem car experience, but rather a set of precise, tactile works focused on the places where things connect: where the mallet hits the marimba, where the stick strikes the drum skin, where the tongue flutters on the reed. An award-winning composer, Kechley here collects works spanning almost three decades, from “Dancing: Four Movements for Five Percussionists playing Forty-four Instruments” (1982) to “Untimely Passages: A Slow Groove & Chaconne for Marimba & Flugelhorn” (2011). Throughout, Kechley mines the intimate in order to find the dramatic, eschewing volume and mass in favor of tension and melodic invention. Sometimes downright bouncy. This extends even to the instrumentation, which includes creative percussion such as circular saw blades and pine planks cut to different lengths in “Design and Construction” or the pitched gongs, crotales, woodblocks, and exotic bells of the title track. Kechley’s immediate and dynamic work has been recognized by a 1979 Guggenheim Fellowship, grants from the National Endowment for the Arts (1976, 1979), and commissions from the Barlow Foundation (1998) and the New England Orchestra Consortium (2004). His works have been commissioned and performed by the Minnesota Orchestra, Boston Pops, Cleveland Orchestra, Seattle Symphony, Louisville Orchestra, United States Military Academy Band, Kronos String Quartet, Lark Quartet, Minneapolis Guitar Quartet, Vienna Saxophone Quartet, among many others.
 
"...There is certainly enough variety here to entertain and to suggest that David Kechley is a composer who invites further acquaintance. None of the music on Colliding Objects is intellectually deep or demanding, but I can’t imagine you won’t find something here to enjoy, including the lively performances and the very immediate recording, which captures all those percussive transients in really juicy detail." ****
 
Lee Passarella - AudiophileAudition.com - April 2013
 

"...All these works are beautifully performed, and the recording is clear and direct. Kechley is a composer with real integrity, concerned first of all with making well-wrought, inventive, and expressive music. He eschews superficial flash, but still delights in color. A fine composer portrait."
 
Robert Carl - Fanfare - March/April 2013

"...much of Kechley’s music is lyrical and formally limpid in an almost old-school way...the discordant or atonal expressionism suggested by the album title never materialises and Kechley’s music reveals itself as accessible and even quite catchy. Sound quality, as always with Innova, is immaculate..."
