John Cage - Three Constructions
Donald Knaack Percussion Ensemble, Jay Clayton voice | FLAC | 174MB | Avant-Garde
Cage's exploration of percussion timbre is mapped through these three constructions from 1939 to 1941, moving from a clustered, brooding early work, to slithering near-jazz, and finally onto a furious burst of precise, mostly atonal rhythmic elements. The Zen-like calm of "A Flower," dance music for voice and drum, breaks up the percussion with otherworldly vocal trills.
