An electronic music realization of the instrumental parts for a six movement chamber work featuring soprano voice from composer Buddin, a vigorous, dissonant, rhythmically complex work in the vein of Stockhausen, Ruggles, Babbitt, &c.
Released in: USA
"David Buddin's Canticles is an electronic music realization of the instrumental parts for a six movement chamber work featuring soprano voice. The music is vigorous, dissonant, rhythmically complex and exhilarating. Influenced heavily by the thrust of the Western classical music tradition, Buddin is a modern musical maverick in the lineage of radical, iconoclastic American composers like Charles Ives, Carl Ruggles, Elliott Carter, Ralph Shapey and Milton Babbitt.
The timbral character of this release is reminiscent of latter-day electronic realizations by Karlheinz Stockhausen, featuring phrases of seemingly erratic proportion, starkly dovetailing, unfolding and hurtling chaotically from within a void of digital silence. Buddin's fastidious compositional voice is entirely uncompromising and bristles with untertones of violence, cruelty and danger. This release should appeal equally to fans of New Music, noise, electronic music and avant-rock alike: It is intense, relentless and highly intelligent. This sophisticated offering demands close scrutiny."-ugExplode
