Back in the dark ages of the 90’s there was a cool site devoted to indie bands and artists call the Internet Underground Music Archive. It was a great site which hosted some very unusual music. Unfortunately the site eventually went the way of the so many cool 90’s sites atrophied and then disappeared altogether. The piece was originally improvised in 12 equal using a Roland GR-20 driving guitar, string, synth bass, and percussion. Later I adapted it to other tunings – and these appear in order of production. The 11 edt version is played at double time for variety.
In Cold Hell, in Thicket is a microtonal musical setting of Charles Olsen reading his poem in 1950 as provided by PennSound. The orchestration is choir in 14 edo, hang drums in 7, 14, and 21 edo, and percussion. Each iteration of hang drum used the same score so the result is a polytuned interpretation of the hang drum score.
