Catherine Marie Charlton's music can be described as a fusion of classical, new age, and jazz piano. "Strange Attractors," her debut release, is a compilation of piano improvisations, which weave through her original frameworks of mood, musical thoughts, melodies, and rhythms. Most of the tracks on the CD were recorded live in concert, and paint a surprisingly wide range of pictures, from the frenetic over-caffeinated musings of 'one cup too many' to the sweeping emotional tide of 'The Asymptote'. The evident influences upon these piano originals are varied, ranging from George Winston's elegant manipulation of tonal relationships to Claude Debussy's impressionistic, aural snapshots. Also apparent are traces of German composer Karlheinz Stockhausen's compositional techniques based on geometric structures and his fascination with "open forms" derived not from a melodic phrase, but from a particular mood.
Evidenced by the expressive and distinctive tonalities of her debut CD, Strange Attractors, pianist Catherine Marie Charlton is a rising star....
Possessing evolvement as an innate structure, these "frameworks for improvisation" are paradoxical-like the "law" of coincidence-or like the human spirit, simultaneously micro and macrocosmic.... The title track epitomizes this paradox. Taken from Chaos Theory, ...the term Strange Attractors is often used to describe random behavior in the face of deterministic, "natural" law. Here, it suggests the kind of passionate tension between two people compelling old ladies to click their tongues and sigh: "Well ...opposites do attract!"
...Yes, indeed, there is a method to the madness, after all! It dwells in the modality of mood, in the seduction of strategically placed sound-and silence. It exists in this music-and in the memories it awakens. -- Dawn Bailiff, Journalist, Co-Director, Maison des Arts
