IDEAS: Ives, Rimsky-Korsakov, Partch, Carrillo, Harrison, Beardsley, Varese, Cage, Coates
A very small, essentially handmade, edition of 300 copies of pieces researched and performed for the microtonal society at various venues in New York. Includes an alternative version of Ives's The Unanswered Question (prepared by Ives himself), a world premiere of Rimsky-Korsakov's Prelude for Strings, Julian Carrillo's unpublished I think of you, performed here on a 96-tone harp and voice, Harry Partch's Ulysses departs from the edge of the World for trumpet, string bass and 3 Boobams, Lou Harrison's excellent and interesting Simfony in Free Style (World Premiere) for strings, bassoon, flutes, horn, electronic hap and percussion, David Beardsley's Sonic Boom for guitar activated Korg Synthesiser tuned to 23-limit harmonic series, Edgard Varese's Graphs and Time (world premiere - worked up from a sketch of a graphic score made by EV for the legendary Teo Macero for jazz ensemble; I think this may have fared better in the hands of the jazz musicians it was envisioned for; in this version it doesn't add anything to Varese's reputation), John Cage's In the Name of the Holocaust for prepared piano and the seldom performed Gloria Coates' Lunar Loops for two guitars which are microtonally retuned in the course of the piece. Historic microtonal pieces are rare, so for those interested, this is a must have.L
