SMALLEY, ROGER : Pulses
Large scale swelling and swirling orchestra clusters (26 'moments'), for 5 instrumental groups (brass and percussion - in concert spatially deployed) and real-time ring modulation. A work very much of its time (late 60's - a good time for experimental music) and clearly influenced by Stockhausen. Written for the great ensemble Intermodulation, of which Smalley was a co-founder. A fine piece.
