Additional Information

This is an piece which combines ambient electronics, sampling various sources including Ginsberg reading the poem 'A Message from Paris', with a recording of a violin melody composed by me. It explores the poem from several different angles, with a structure which is parallel to that of the poem. This composition focusses on the line 'and your brothers are crazy', deliberately avoiding some of the more direct or emotive passages to result in a piece which is emotionally oblique and somewhat whimsical, a counterbalance to the way in which my piece 'Since We Had Changed' explores the same poem in most ways. 

The piece was here created entirely electronically, but can be performed live with a violinist and live stereo electronics.
