Suite #0​.​10 (Guillotar Symphony)

by St Celfer



The second of two releases, the bookend to Suites #1-9, a premonition of my upcoming live and improvised two track work.

In 1975 Lou Reed released Metal Machine Music claiming it was Classical. I think it is. Unfortunately, his ego, bruised by the reception to MMM, could not stand behind it until the last year's of his life.

This symphony in 3 parts does stand behind the claim that this music is, indeed, rooted in the tradition through, most recently, John Cage, La Monte Young, and MMM.

My current project accidentally started in 2005 when one of the tracks in these compositions was captured live. It was from another world - I did not know what to do.

Now realized during a pandemic, '0.10b' is comprised of sounds projected on 16 speakers into the corners of a cubic space to form a beyond third dimensional music. This is the stereo version (and very limited interpretation) of St Celfer's music. See the 'live' version!

Meanwhile... This is a pre-release for reference.
