Arupa / Fantasia Su Una Nota

(Hungaraton) Used LP $25.00 (Out-of-stock)

On Arupa (1981) for six to eight ship-bells, a single drum, and a sustained pitch (here is provided by an electric organ), the process is somewhat similar to Terry Riley’s In C, with the bells’ rich tone leaving a much different impression. Fantasia Su Una Nota (1984), for two groups: five to twenty-four players wielding instruments ‘whose sound can be influenced after ts has begun to sound (e.g., strings, woodwind, brasses, etc.)’; and five plucked instruments or tuned percussion, also has a continuous electronic tone resonates throughout.


Közeledések És Távolodások

(Hungaraton) Used LP $17.00

Dark heaviness with minimalist and repetitive features, seeking to reach the innermost layers of the soul and the mind. Rhythm and loud harmony contribute to the loss of standard interpretation and the blur of original meanings, the goal being the absence of conscious thinking, a state similar to meditation, to get to the content of the human mind underlying consciousness. Four-page insert poetry, notations and liner notes.
