Product details

The musical illustration of a nonsense text, Perception de la ligne droite has a neo-classical flavour, deliberately adopting a Stravinsky-like tonality not really corresponding to the nature of the text; this contradiction is in itself bizarre, it does, however, provide relatively easy rhythms and vocal lines for the choir.

Published by: Australian Music Centre — 1 facsimile score (60p. -- A4 (portrait))

Difficulty: Advanced

Duration: 16 mins

Commissioned by Astra Chamber Music Society with funds provided by Australia Council.

Includes full text with English translation.

An allegro or allegretto march-like baroque tempo pervades the score with an aleatoric interruption at the mid-way point.

This is a handwritten edition — it is not typeset.
