Twenty-three 3-minutes pieces for sax quartet triggering computer electronics and synthesizers. Performed live in San Francisco in 1989. Electric Rags II is designed to be performed in a different, random order every time. Only “corny island”, a section of structured improvisation is played more than once in any given performance. Alvin Curran writes: “The music itself, like an experimental voyage, sets out to see what, if anything, lies beyond ‘improvisation.’ To this end both determinate and indeterminate notations are employed together with a special interactive system, which can reproduce electronically anything the players play – as they play it, or any time after, and in some cases even before.” Features such catchy tunes as “Z train” “Harmony Circus” “When In But Out But” and “Scusami, I Walk Alone.”
Jon Raskin (baritone and alto sax); Larry Ochs (tenor and sopranino sax); Steve Adams (alto and sopranino sax); Bruce Ackley (soprano sax); Alvin Crran (electronics); Scot Gresham-Lancaster (Oberheim Expander)
