Product details

With text from Dante's Inferno, my Purgatorio, Paradiso is a post minimalist work which draws comparison with Stockhausen's Stimmung. The original voice recordings which form the backing track were samples recorded specifically by the Song Company for my work.

The following review provides a good program note:

"Whiticker's diptych Purgatorio Paradiso addressed the cherished notion that frequent changes of chord are a precondition for musical interest. He argues by example that it is not, and in part two, Paradiso, achieves a genuinely dramatic climax entirely by other means: dynamics, textural density, and the interplay of voices with the work's electronic tape component."
