Dining Room Music (by Rupert Kettle)

Price: $15.00

Product Information

Published by Studio 4 in 1984, 'Dining Room Music', scored for "four percussionists and tableware," was inspired by John Cage's 'Living Room Music'. As the composer explains, "Dining Room Music" uses Cage's rhythmic structures, but in reverse order....The talking movement here is a rebuttal to the Gertrude Stein text used by Cage and was written by a distant relative of Gertrude's, Phyllis Stein: "Happily ever after the world is flat Don't you fall off and go ker-splat."
