1994_0624 : Clair De Lunatic

Description

Description


(1994) Composer : Eric Scott

This work emerged from the straightforward development of a musical theme, voiced through six MIDI electronic keyboards: the six voices all speak in unison before branching off into their separate rhythms and melodies– finally reuniting on a single-chord recapitulation of the six-chord sequence.

The descending “chain of suspensions” contained in this piece mirrors the grim facial expression taken on by the piece. I am thoroughly indebted to the early music of Michael Nyman for my inspiration pool on this one.
