Beast, by trombonist David Manson, presents 5 electro acoustic works; four for live trombone and tape, and one for radung and guitar. Manson presents a very solid and virtuosic performance and all the pieces are crafted by composers comfortable in the mediums they have chosen. The technology that is used in the pieces and the virtuosity of the performer do not over shadow the artistic ideas of the individual works.
