Daniel Goode (1936), composer and clarinetist, was born in New York, studied philosophy, and then music with Henry Cowell, Otto Luening, Pauline Oliveros and Kenneth Gaburo. He is director of the Electronic Music Studio of Rutgers University, and co-director of the DownTown Ensemble, which he co-founded in New York in 1983.
Tunnel-Funnel, composed in 1985 is one of his most ambitious and exhilarating works. It was premiered in 1988 by the DownTown Ensemble conducted by David Gilbert, repeated at the New Music America in 1989 festival and at Bang On A Can Festival 1996 performed by the Crosstown Ensemble under Eric Grunin.
Trains have been a large part of Dan's dream and fantasy life: "A funnel is a tunnel seen in perspective, and it is a focusing device. When reversed it's a telescope which magnifies, putting a more generous space around each thing magnified."
Tzadik is proud to release the first recording of this important work, produced and supervised by the composer himself.
