Product details

"[her sparkling flesh in a saecular ecstasy] combined juxtaposition and superimposition of timbres in graceful sound poetry… the point of the work was not to find sonic analogues, but neighbouring sounds that lead the ear along the curves of a sonic sculpture: to be precise, the sonic sculpture that Paulding draws from Richard Wilbur's poem 'A Baroque Wall Fountain in the Villa Sciarra.' The largely impressionist sonic palette flows and splashes like Wilbur's fountain: cymbal crashes and an arcing ejaculation from the clarinet release the cascade that rushes through rattling skewers and strikes of the double bass bow on the strings ("flatteries of spray"), shimmering woodwinds ("a clambering mesh of water-lights") and a truly incontinent "ragged, loose collapse of water" played by all. The work concludes much as it begins, with the somehow obscene burbling of a clarinet mouthpiece in a glass of water."
