Sheet Music: Score
Sights and settings : for live 'cello and prerecorded electronics / Stephen Leek.
by Stephen Leek (1986)
Sights and Settings combines some traditional and some not so tradtional live sounds on the 'cello with some more familar electronic instrumental writing. These elements together produce a piece which has at times a popular music flavour to it. The work is in several sections which are;
City 1 - Surging energies in fast irregular rhythms and climaxes
Song of Unknown Places - Subdued and morbid yet quite melodious is a sinister and devious way
City 2 - Familiar and yet strangely unknow
Towers - Strong and glittering like individuals in a crowded stadium
Wanderings - Melodic and meandering, music to become lost in.
