Ode To Gravity:
Daniell Revenaugh and the Electric Symphony Orchestra

Listen
Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 21 min
Event Type: Interview Program Origin: KPFA

From an interview recorded on Oct. 24, 1972, Charles Amirkhanian talks with Daniell Revenaugh, the conductor of the Electric Symphony Orchestra, about the group’s then upcoming inaugural concert. The Electric Symphony Orchestra was a small traditional orchestra in which each instrument was electronically processed and amplified so as to resemble the tonality of a larger acoustic orchestra. The intent was to produce a sound that was faithful to the traditional concert environment while using far fewer performers, about 30 instrumentalist as opposed to the 100 of so used in a typical large, urban, symphony orchestra. The orchestra, which was still in the experimental stage, was planning to do works from the classical repertoire and wass not solely dedicated to the new music of the 20th century.
