Just uploaded a few of my strictly "tonal" pieces at request of friends here.  However I reserve the right to use any idiom that suits the need and situation!

Music for Art Exhibit: Memoir of the (20th) Century

Posted on March 17, 2012 at 2:00pm 0 Comments

The music I just uploaded was written in 1980 for a large art exhibition in London titled Memoir of the Century -- by visual artist Felix Topolski http://www.topolskicentury.org.uk/  We worked together from 1978-1980 to envision a "sound-scape" for his Memoir.

P.S. I also wanted to thank you for your explanation of the significance of the individual pieces from "Memoir."  I am sure hearing the work in its fully complexity-- various parts from different angles, in the context of an exhibition-- is a wonderful experience (perhaps a bit like seeing/hearing the early public audio-visual work of Edgar Varése).

Hello Bentrup Gray,

It's fortuitous that you just left a welcome message on my page.  I was thinking of leaving you a message just yesterday after I heard  parts of your Memoir. (I don't recall how I stumbled onto your page).  I started with the violin and synth, then listened to the 02 War Years, and ended with Memoir 01 Voice.  They were all superb, I thought.  I most enjoyed War Years and Voice.  The mix in War Years of Buddhist chanting, marching, German and Italian oratory, sirens, crowds yelling slogans and operatic aria was most effective and moving.  I listened to that several times.  The voice in 01 was most plaintive.  I heard that one twice.  I am impressed with the work.  What was the question you had for me, though?  Something about the profile page.  "Meaning?"  The page has just been started, and I am learning how to set it up.  I am sure what you want to the know the meaning of.
