Dance/Drop (alternate version) (1987),
Works for 2-6 Players
Pierrot Ensemble (no voice)
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.
