JOHN CAGE (1912-1992): Solo for Voice 58: 18 Microtonal Ragas.
Catalogue Number: 01J103
Label: Other Minds
Reference: OM 1010-2
Description: An indeterminate work of 18 separate parts in which the performer is to develop ragas and talas in a "non-traditional" context. The complexity and density of the pieces and the concepts behind them prevent further discussion in the brief space available but Cage collectors will appreciate knowing that the Italian vocalist trained many years in India. Amelia Cluni (dhrupad vocals), Werner Durand (drones, electronics), Raymond Kaczynski, Federico Sanesi (percussion).
