Description
Kingdom Come uses two contrasting orchestras separated by space and mode: a traditional one and a circus-type one with "slide trumpets, slide whistles, sirens, klaxons, buzzers, electric bells, ratchets, air compressors and a soprano who impersonates a psychotic Valkyrie." Yeah! Fanfare pronounced the latter "a strange merry-go-round music that intermittently clashes in an almost tragicomic manner with the serious, modernist tone of the stage orchestra. This is a fascinating piece, and it suggests layers of meaning far beyond those that the composer discusses in his useful notes…. Brant is a significant figure in the history of American music, and I hope that this disc either signals or starts a reawakening of interest in his work." For the improvisatory Machinations, Brant recorded all of the instruments himself (timpani, chimes, xylophone, glockenspiel, organ, flutes, and harp) and then altered some of the parts electronically.
