Frühlingsritual consists of the two LapCore compositions (on ideas of Stravinsky) for Vidatone’s ‘Augmenting the Now’ exhibition in Berlin.
Track 1 eponymously titled ‘Frühlingsritual’ is based on an arrangement of Stravinsky’s Rite of Spring, but played on a new, experimental software synthesizer for composing cTonal music.
Wiegenlied, (track 2) is based in part on Stravinsky’s Petrushka, Firebird Suite, as well as Rite of Spring, combining both atonal, and cTonal techniques to form a single polymetric, polytonal collage. Wiegenlied is a lullaby to gently introduce the sounds of cTonality.
Thanks to André Vida for the encouragement, opportunity, and saxophone playing. Thanks to Dan Isbell for the trumpet playing.
the dynamic range of Frühlingsritual is quite wide and the effects of stereotactic audio entrainment can be disorienting to the uninitiated. playing cTonal music too loud can cause visual and aural hallucinations, spatial disorientation, dizziness, and in some cases epileptic seizure. Please listen responsibly.
LapCore, W3rkH0f Music, and Kent Clelland assume absolutely no liability for irresponsible use of these songs.
