A hybrid acoustic tape piece of solo violin on four track tape, and a work for four violins, composed in 1974 by Harley Gaber, delicate pieces that he considered complements to his large work "The Winds Rise in the North".

Label: Edition Rz    
Released in: Germany    

"Both works on this CD form, in a manner of speaking, bookends for another piece of mine, The Winds Rise in the North.

The first of the two, "Sovereign of the Centre", was my initial attempt at putting a new musical way of thinking into an ensemble rather than solo form. The second, "The Realm of Indra's Net", builds on musical "discoveries" I made in the course of revising The Winds Rise in the North. It is a hybrid work in as much as it is an "acoustic-tape piece" (not music concrete): There are four tracks of solo violin mixed down in different track combinations. (The one heard on this CD is a full-track mono version of the work.)

Both of these pieces reflect a general shift in my musical thinking, which occurred in 1968 with "Chimyaku" (Japanese for "barely moving") scored for solo alto flute. It was with that work that I began to compose "slowed-down" music, like slow motion images in film, not merely slow music such as that of Feldman."-Harley Gaber
