The Argentine composer residing in Germany discusses his "Anagramme" for chorus and instruments, and is questioned after the music by Pauline Oliveros, Ramón Sender, and Will Ogdon. One of his more famous compositions, “Anagramme” takes as the inspiration for it’s text a Latin palindrome found in Dante’s Divine Comedy. Broken down into a variety of phonemic anagrams in four different languages, French, Spanish, Italian, and German the resulting “chorus” is at times abrupt and noisy. Prior to hearing the work, Kagel, from a lecture given at Mills College, goes into considerable detail about how he wrote the piece. Kagel died in 2008.
