World Ear Project:
A Rehearsal for a Work by John Dinwiddie

Listen
Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 9 min
Event Type: Other Finds Program Origin: KPFA

From March 28, 1971, a recording of a music rehearsal for an unidentified work by John Dinwiddie. As someone plays the piano one can hear a number of other people work on getting the electronic components to work. Abrupt explosions of sound occur as what might be radios and oscillators are plugged in, turned on, or suddenly disconnected. Joining the piano are chimes, whistles, and various forms of percussion in what seems to be a rather freewheeling rehearsal. Whether it is an actual piece being rehearsed or just musicians fooling around until the amps and microphones are all up and running is a little uncertain, but that doesn’t prevent the interested listener from enjoying the sonic surroundings.
