David Lang dance/drop (original version) (1987)
Composer Note:

dance/drop is an arrangement of the two instrumental movements from my piece “are you experienced?” for narrator, electric tuba and large ensemble. In “are you experienced?” the narrator carries on an odd conversation with an imagined vision of an unconscious listener. In turns, the narrator is amusing, consoling and menacing, and sometimes gives the listener various ominous commands. dance and drop are two of those commands.

-- David Lang

Dance/Drop by David Lang was stirring in other ways: the irresistible drive of the music, the fresh sonorities and brilliant parts for the individuals playing it.
