DANIEL LENTZ made a visit to these pages very early on with 1985's Missa Ubrarum but I never really dug much deeper...and then this popped up as a reminder that should. Lentz lands somewhere between new age and outsider modern composer, described perfectly as "abstract and difficult but not unpleasant to listen to." Massacre Of Lions And Lambs is six movements - voices and synthesized sounds captured in live in France and Pittsburgh in 1988. It makes me chuckle that a composer of much renown can appear as a new and exciting "discovery" when it's crammed haphazardly in a box full of punk tapes (as this was)...but it shouldn't be important how you discover, only that you do.
