Sheet Music: Score
Perception de la ligne droite / Lawrence Whiffin.
Also known as: Perception of the straight line
by Lawrence Whiffin (1986)
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))
Duration: 16 mins
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.
