Reelizations: Composed and Performed by Barton Smith

Reelizations: Composed and Performed by Barton Smith

This 1980 recording explores combinations of acoustic instruments and recording technologies. The increasing cost of large ensembles performing new works led composers to experiment with inexpensive alternatives. Barton Smith creates his own orchestra mixing recordings and acoustic instruments with everyday items such as swivel chairs and glass bottles. Liner notes include descriptions of how each track was composed, the composer's biographical information, and suggestions for how each track can be used for film, radio, or television accompaniment.
