Jena & Gomorrah (sub)
From a Stanford professor: Modern classical music with a sense of fun and quite a few pieces in a fast-moving but spare vein, quite action-packed. Mostly acoustic instruments in small groups, but some electronics apply on 8-10 and there's also the homemade mouseketier on 1. |
1- Hard-edged, cartoony brass. Quiet percussion interludes for sound-sculpture: wooden sounds, twangy sounds, rattling.
2- Barking horns again, some strings as well. Sparse but active feel.
3- Percussion: rolling and dynamic. Ends quietly.
4- Stabbing percussion and piano, squawking clarinet. Abstract and fast-moving.
5- Sounds mostly improvised. Abstract criss-crossings of piano, flute, trumpet, with some pecking unison lines later
6- Mozart classical that gets increasingly weird and loud (but stays flowery). Crazy prepared piano stuff.
7- Solo trumpet, perky and dynamic.
8- Fast, active. Heavy in violin (lots of bow bouncing & other tricks) and bass clarinet.
9- Slow, dramatic washes of electronics.
11- Quiet electronics rustling; pecking, peppery piano comes in after a couple minutes
12- The lone orchestral piece. Busy and multifaceted, it slows down after a brisk start but still gives the feeling of a lot going on.
