i read about michael gordon in an old guardian article about steve reich earlier today and have been exploring his music this evening…in decasia, he had musicans purposefully tune flat and sharp. pretty out of control! there are six parts. here is part 6. the other parts are super rad as well and a little more chaotic (part 3)….
“Decasia now exists in two formats. The staged version completely alters the performance space, with musicians sitting on a multi-tiered set behind hanging scrims, which provide a surface for the projections and film. The audience stands or sits, surrounded by the set, engulfed in a barrage of sound and imagery. ”
i want to be surrounded by the set, engulfed in a barrage of sound and imagery!!!!!
