Giacinto Scelsi – “The Orchestral Works 2”

Jim ‘This has been on rotation chez JG for weeks. I previously only knew his piano music and picked this up recently in Chicago. Sombre clustery drones moan and coalesce, build in unearthly cresecndso, with instrumental timbres mingling to create new textures. In a similar area to the Spectralists like Grisey and Murail, which I have ben listening to a lot and trying to decipher how they create their work.’
