"an engrossing meditation on the sustain, overlap and decay of isolated pitches." - The Chicago Tribune on Drew Baker's Gray for solo piano - featured on Stress Position "a determined protector of important music" - The New York Times on pianist Marilyn Nonken Stress Position is the first recording to feature the works of Chicago-based composer Drew Baker. Baker's compositions have been presented by many leading new music groups including The International Contemporary Ensemble (ICE) and The Group for Contemporary Music. Stress Position has also been performed by Nonken, a Professor of Music at NYU, at festivals throughout the world including Music Harvest Festival in Denmark, Works & Process at The Guggenheim Museum, Philadelphia's CHAMBER MUSIC NOW! and Festival of New American Music in Sacramento. In addition to addressing political topics, Baker's piano works continually challenge preconceived notions of the instrument itself. From the ethereal, "electronic" sounds of the opening track, Gaeta for two pianos and water percussion, to the shotgun blast chords of Asa Nisi Masa for solo amplified piano, Nonken's stunning performances are a testament to the piano's myriad identities.
