Giacinto Scelsi - Uaxuctum


It is subtitled: The legend of the Maya city, destroyed by themselves for religious reasons.

A friend used to run a nightclub in Wales, and I remember a drunken afternoon with students in the empty club and him asking me my choice of music to play really loud through the system. So I gave them a cd of my favourite- Scelsi's Uaxuctum.  I walked around the dancefloor in the dark and it was unforgettable! I also remember playing Prenderecki's Threnody, though I think they were choosing Roni Size!

Harrison Birtwistle - The Triumph of Time

How to draw an image for these sounds by Harrison?

It creeps on you, there is a great tension. A lot of classical music lures me to the freedom of abstracted landscapes.
