GABURO, KENNETH: Maledetto, Antiphony VIII

Quantity in Basket:none

Pioneer of electronic music, compositional linguistics, and founder of the New Music Choral Ensemble and Lingua Press, Gaburo has spent his life experimenting with language-as-music and music-as-language. The two pieces featured here are the 1967-9 Maledetto, a remarkable, high-octane vocal theatre piece for 7 speakers centred on the word screw' in all its connotations, and Antiphony, for tape and percussion - a strongly theatrical piece for percussionist and tape. A rare recoding by Gaburo, whose work is generally underrepresented even today.
