Pauline Oliveros ‎– Crone Music (CD album)

Pauline Oliveros, solo accordion; Panaiotis, processing and mixing.

“Commissioned by Mabou Mines, the experimental theater group from New York, for their interpretation of “King Lear,” Oliveros’ Crone Music is a subtle and haunting electronic music endeavor. Interfacing an abundance of digital delay processors, reverb effects and foot pedals to bend pitches from piercing to twisted, sonorous tones, with her one-of-a-kind expanded accordion, Oliveros produces rich, eerie textures. “Studio recordings from 1989-90, ‘commissioned by Mamou Mines, the New York based experimental theater collective, for their production of Lear by William Shakespeare.’ In use herein is a fairly complex series of pitch-modulated foot-controlled digital delay units which render Oliveros’ solo accordion playing into a full accordion ensemble. This all results in SERIOUSLY dense overtone/ghost chord action, complete with microtones and countermelodies emulating something like a grand-pipe-organ jam session. Heavy. By far the most ear-triggering of all Oliveros’s explorations with said instrument.”
