We have a copy of the DVD here at AMN central and plan to write about it, but MELODIKA.net got there first….
Leading new-music composer Phil Kline debuts a major work, Around the World in a Daze, on a new surround sound DVD released by Starkland (http://www.starkland.com/). The 65-minute studio composition was commissioned by Starkland specifically for high-resolution surround sound and to premiere on DVD.

Kline is recognized as “one of America’s most important compositional voices” (Philadelphia Inquirer). Reviewing Kline in concert, The New York Times wrote, “Magic was happening as you sat there. Here was a real original.”
Kline’s longest work, Daze is likely the largest work commissioned so far for a high-resolution surround-sound recording. Offered in a custom-designed package, this double-DVD release also features an Extras DVD, highlighted by a 34-minute interview with Kline. The two DVDs contain a total content of 110 minutes.
