Music From Central Asia-The Undead
Friday, March 18, 1988
The music of Tibet, Kashmir and the Mevlevi dervishes appears side by side with Western works using Central Asian instruments. Featured is a performance by the Tibetan Singing Bowl Ensemble recorded live in the New Sounds studio. The work, written for and first performed in Hiroshima and Nagasaki on the anniversary of the bombings of those cities, uses the unearly sounds of metal bowl, shofar (ram's horn), and human thighbone trumpet.
