Members of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra came together to form Color Field, a small string quartet for the purpose of performing and recording James Matheson's String Quartet.

"Matheson's String Quartet is an impressive piece of work. Thirty-two minutes long, it is brimming with ideas; the richness of their number is palpable... (Matheson) obviously has a talent for writing for strings. The String Quartet is, perhaps first and foremost, beautifully orchestrated, the combination of instruments used to create one wondrous color after another. Motor rhythms and repeated patterns juice forward progress; these ideas move through tonal progressions, reaching plateaus of more static material (at least in the first two movements) - meditative, starry-skied, rapt. the quick finale is a syncopated romp...

"Baird (Dodge) created Color Field, a flexible ensemble that can morph between two instruments and a small chamber orchestra to play repertoire musically interesting and challenging to the musicians. For our concert and recording sessions, Color Field was Baird Dodge and Gina Dibello on violins, Weijing Wang on viola and Yi Xin on cello. Baird, Gina and Weijing are members of Chicago Symphony Orchestra...

"We recorded Jim's String Quartet using one AKG C-24 microphone from Ancona Audio and a Midwood vacuum tube microphone preamplifier into our SonoruS ATR12 analog tape recorder using Agfa 468 tape made by EMTEC supplied by Golden Era. Yarlung designed our interconnects. Power cords were made for us personally by Gary Koh from Genesis Advanced Technologies."
