Composer and performer Richard Teitelbaum is known for his pioneering efforts in live electronic music and his early exploration of intercultural improvisation and composition. This live set, one of his best, features Teitelbaum performing two breathtaking originals. This download captures every nuance and inspired instrumentation with startling clarity. Solo Live is experimental music at its finest.
From the Liner Notes
The first set, “Threshold Symphonies” is all played on a Kurzweil 2000 Sampler Keyboard and a Macbook Pro computer using Ableton Live software. The samples used consist of many I have gathered over the years. These include nature sounds, old Moog synth sounds, music of many friends, western and non-western musicians, sounds made with Max/MSP software, and others.
The second set, TBCi/bRT, is basically acoustic improvisation using piano, bells, slide whistle, and a small, handheld, electronic Crackle Box, designed many years ago by my friend, the late composer Michel Waisvisz. The music here is also indebted to the threshold idea in part, using the soft sounds from outside (sirens) as integral aspects of the music.
