Notes & Comments

Jon Naurin

At the Circus: From a TV broadcast (We Don't Mess Around) rehearsal in Munich Sep 1978.

Krzysztof Penderecki, Talking Doll Noises & Mauricio Kagel


talking doll noises (recorded in a German toy-shop as seen in the video 'We Don't Mess Around' 1979)

Krzystzof Penderecki, 20th-Century Polish composer ("Threnody for the Victims of Hiroshima")


Polish composer Krzysztof Penderecki (born 1933 and still kickin'). He's one of the really great ones.


Subject: Re: Mauricio Kagel eat your heart out, eat yer heart out!

Oops, this one hadn't appeared when I answered the question about Penderecki, or I woulda done 'em both at once. It's Argentine-born composer Mauricio Kagel (1931- ). He wrote a lot of pioneering electronic music, and experimented with indeterminacy, which is probably the context FZ was thinking of when he made the above remark. Kagel is even on the Freak Out influences list.
