Petrillo’s fear in the 1940’s that canned music would replace the human performer seems unfounded. Pop musicians...

30. - Decay: A Work by Douglas Leedy [5.082% Popularity: 0.00000]
Decay: A Work by Douglas Leedy Listen Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 42 min Event Type: Music A rare recording of Douglas Leedy’s “Decay,” a work of musical theater composed in 1965 and recorded at a concert of the San Francisco Conservatory Artist Ensemble in the mid to late 1960s. The musical portion of the piece consists of a tape work assembled from a number of old records of piano music by Leedy and his collaborator, Ian Underwood, which was then played while live musicians accompanied it on piano and other instruments. The exact nature of the dramatic portion of this performance is uncertain but apparently probably involved a number of females actors in bathrobes and curlers walking around the stage. Fortunately the music can easily stand on its own merits. Note: “Decay” recording begins as piece is in progress. Musical Selections: Sonata in B Flat Major, L. 498 [excerpt] (1:22) / Domenico Scarlatti -- Decay, a dramatic work with instrumental and tape accompaniment (1965) (35:31) / Douglas Leedy [...
