John Cage: Sixty-Eight, for orchestra

Labels: ,

John Cage (1912-1992): Sixty-Eight, for orchestra (1992).
Radio Sinfonie Orchester Frankfurt, Lucas Vis.

The composition consists of 15 single notes (C#, G#, A, C, Bb, G, B, E, A, B, D#, G, G#, F and D) played throughout the orchestra. Because of its "time-brackets" structure the start and ending of each note may be different for each player, creating a inexact sense of unison, with overtones effecting the color of the sound.
