Birdbrain - Ginsberg - The Gluons

Casting aspersions widely, hoping something will stick. A list of random social atrocities all attributed to a stand-in bad guy, a them. Not among his strongest work.

Witold Lutoslawski
Chain 2- Lutoslawski - BBC Symphony Orchestra, Witold Lutoslawski, Anne-Sophie-Mutter

So what is wrong with putting on a good show? Easy to follow, completely entertaining, brightly colored. Here: no new ground is broken, nothing explored that wasn't known. The given task was fulfilled, music was made, business was duly transacted, we depart unmoved.

Banned Rehearsal 242 - (December 1990, Karen Eisenbrey, Keith Eisenbrey, Aaron Keyt)

Smallish sounds closely regarded. Room roar present. Becoming slow and sleepy to the breathing harmony of harmonica breathing sleepy slow. (PP - drumroll!). A study in singularities. Snare buzz roll interrupted by funmaker percussion. Big Crescendo up to A Big Moment: Grand Pause: Loud! Radio sound smeared with slathered sonic paint.

Banned Rehearsal 587 (recording by Pete Comley) - (October 2000, Peter Comley, Karen Eisenbrey, Keith Eisenbrey, Aaron Keyt, Isabel Kosály-Meyer, Neal Meyer)

Slow bell noodles glued with sax. Tub bass in particular.

Gradus 84 - Neal Meyer

An airplane dopplers over between events.

BF Vocals and Percussion Chorus - Eisenbrey

The density of the percussion chorus begins to produce a hint of an image of a choral sound, so that the ear is beguiled into thinking there is a touch of the vocal in the mix even when there isn't.
