Dresden Interleaf and Medium Size Mograph by Gordon Mumma

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

Gordon Mumma was born in 1935 in Framingham, Mass. One of the originators of the ONCE Festival, he has also established, in collaboration with Robert Ashley, several tours of contemporary music productions. Mumma’s composition “Mograph-Interleaf-Mograph” makes use of large sections of electronic music materials. The “Interleaf” section, by itself called “The Dresden Interleaf (13 February 1945) In Memoriam,” is almost entirely electronic, being composed on four-channel magnetic tape. The first Mograph section is for piano, performed by two pianists. The final Mograph section is also for piano, but the sounds are directly modified by electronic means and heard from loudspeakers. The work was composed between 1963 and 1965. In this recording we hear the final two sections only: “Dresden Interleaf” and “Medium Size Mograph.” The pianists are Mumma and Robert Ashley and this performance was recorded at the 1965 ONCE Festival.
