beneath that unique sun that steadily bled

24 hour challenge #10, “That Unique Sun,” for Peter: score [pdf], performance [mp3], bassoon [mp3]

In honor of Peter, I’ve included a French horn with the string quartet. However, this one is so pretentious that he may not appreciate it. It makes me laugh. Actually, as these atonal things go, the music isn’t bad. Listen to the bassoon version first, without the voice.

I could probably go back in and do more interesting things with the voice, whisper the words just below hearing/understanding, more fragments. That might make it better. Then again, it might not.

  1. Hahaha, yes, pretentious, but what isn’t these days? I actually enjoy it.
    I knew you’d put a horn in there…it reminds me of Bartok’s later stuff.
