Alan Shockley on 60×60 International Mix


60×60 is a one-hour music extravaganza featuring one-minute slices of new music. Alan Shockley’s die Tiefen des Rheins is featured on the International mix, this year celebrating the 10th anniversary of 60×60 International. According to Dr. Shockley, “Editing the live recording of my piece “glint in river’s bed” in two different editing programs generated these overdriven sounds. I extracted this miniature from this happy accident giving it the title “die Tiefen des Rheins”, since both works draw on the opening of Wagner’s music drama “Das Rheingold”.”
