CORNELIUS CARDEW THE GREAT LEARNING PDF

AllMusic Review by Brian Olewnick. The original productions of this piece, in fact, served as the genesis of the legendary pro-amateur Scratch Orchestra. All three are fascinating musical experiences. It is eerie and otherworldly but casts its own unique sense of serenity over the listener. The chorus is required to attempt to valiantly surmount the raging drums and to do so over a long period of time, an idea based on the Buddhist method of practicing chanting in front of a roaring waterfall; they will fail in making themselves clearly heard but something valuable may be learned in the process.

AllMusic Review by Brian Olewnick. The original productions of this piece, in fact, served as the genesis of the legendary pro-amateur Scratch Orchestra.

Little by little, due to sheer physical exhaustion, the singers subside while the drums, gathering rhythmic cohesion, go on and on. From a rich and heady underlying drone, individual voices emerge and recede is that Julie Tippett one hears?

The mass of voices becomes palpable and breathing like a single, multi-throated organism. One can easily imagine, in lesser hands, a composition like this disintegrating into a new agey mush, but this one succeeds wildly as a deep and probing conception, realized fully and with passion. Very highly recommended.

A guide to Cornelius Cardew's music

Back to Paragraph 7. What happens in a performance of the piece is that everyone sings a word of Confucius for a prescribed number of times, sustaining each repetition for the duration of your individual breath. When you move on to the next line, you take your next pitch from another vocalist in the group. That means that having started with a completely unpredictable chordal texture, because everyone sings a note of their own choosing for the very first word, the pitch content of the piece gradually narrows as notes are shared among the ensemble, until there's just a single singer and a single note left.

He later rejected experimental music, explaining why he had "discontinued composing in an avantgarde idiom" in his own programme notes to his Piano Album [ full citation needed ]. Cardew was born in Winchcombe , Gloucestershire. He was the second of three sons whose parents were both artists—his father was the potter Michael Cardew. The family moved to Wenford Bridge Pottery Cornwall a few years after his birth where he was first nurtured as a chorister at Canterbury Cathedral, and later at The King's School, Canterbury [1] which had evacuated to the nearby Carlyon Bay Hotel [2] for the war. His musical career thus began as a chorister. From to , Cardew studied piano, cello, and composition at the Royal Academy of Music in London. Having won a scholarship to study at the recently established Studio for Electronic Music in Cologne, Cardew served as an assistant to Karlheinz Stockhausen from to
