    Vladimir Ussachevsky – Electronic and Acoustic Works 1957-1972

    Vladimir Ussachevsky - Electronic and Acoustic Works 1957-1972

    This is a reissue of an old CRI CD that was released back in 1999. It contains electronic tape music, tape music with chorus and chorus alone. The first six tracks, which span 1957-1971, contain short interludes of reverbed, clanging, beeping, shocking, echoing and garbled sound realms of atypical twilight. “Of Wood And Brass” is an especially raucous yet carefully composed pile-up of inhuman sounds. Very nice, indeed. “Three Scenes From The Creation” (1960) is for chorus, mezzo-soprano and electronic tape. It’s really odd to hear straight-ahead classical choral singing accompanied and interrupted by such startling noises—a very unique phenomenon, to say the least. “Missa Brevis” is a work for soprano and chorus alone.
