So few people comment, I hate to waste posting space, but here’s another totally and only GPO piece that I put together yesterday and today. It’s about 3:30 and in deference to dial-up Mac folk there’s a LoFi 64K MP3 (1.6 meg)as well as a Windows Media 64K (also 1.6 meg) and a more truly HiFi 160 MP3 (at 4.1 meg, the best if you have broadband).
As usual, it’s original (I don’t do “covers” or comment on them anymore) and the "form" is A-B-C-B-C-Ending, where “C” is in 5/4 and everything else is 3/4. Those of you familiar with Philip Glass, John Adams, Steve Reich and Terry Riley can hear the influences. The discordant elements are strictly intentional -- I can't stay in the 19th century as pleasant as those sounds are!
P.S. Yes, this will probably go into my "Cirque du Soleil" audition CD (not that they've asked for it -- yet). As any of you who have attended their wonderful live shows know, they have a live "band" of 7 or 8 players and most of their music is structured so that if a performer misses a cue, they can drop back to a "repeat point" and get re-synched. I think my stuff would be ideal for that!
