Jayson Greene
Pitchfork, February 2012

[Lisa Moore is] the best kind of contemporary classical musician, one so fearsomely game that she inspires composers to offer her their most wildly unplayable ideas. She can play them all.

Her latest record, Lightning Slingers and Dead Ringers, is a dense, fiendish record that might appeal to devotees of Nine Inch Nails' The Downward Spiral. The composer Annie Gosfield doesn't just provide a loop of electronic sampled noise for Moore to accompany on her piano, she makes Moore play the sampler and the piano herself—a fact that becomes doubly mind-blowing when you listen to the record. The looping tones that ground this piece are some nasty shit: The gurgling synth loop on the second movement, "Languid and Layered", wouldn't be out of place on a Cash Money record. While this cacophony resounds, Moore hammers out high, brittle accompaniment on the piano. The interplay of the two is some of the most genuinely demonic-sounding music I've heard all year. © 2012 Pitchfork Read complete review
