Música de outros tempos.
“Babbitt’s Ensembles for Synthesizer (1964) applies these compositional methods to the then-young medium of electronic music. Realized at the Columbia-Princeton Electronic Music Center, the work applies traditional twelve-tone principles to a full palette of musical parameters contained within interrelating collections (or “ensembles”) of pitches. Babbitt’s use of the synthesizer at once illustrates one of the primary advantages afforded the composer of electronic music: the ability to move with great speed and perfect accuracy among an infinite array of timbral, rhythmic, dynamic, and other gradations. The result in this case is a kaleidoscope of novel timbres, and a signal work in the history of electronic music.” (Rovi Staff)
