another voices

Ted Warnell used short excerpts from the Finnish national anthem Maamme and "Nocturne" by Eino Leino as well as a javascript generator to produce these exciting minimalist sound poems for Nokturno. Using Ted's own words:
ANTHM is created (loosely) in the style of Steve Reich's minimal, rhythmic compositions, and to mark the 40th anniversary of publication of his highly significant piece, "Come Out" -- (i have the original 1966 Columbia recording on vinyl here in my collection) -- Reich is, of course, a leading figure in development of minimalist music

NoCTRN is created (loosely) in the style of Inuit throat singers of Canada's north -- the stereo channels are used to emulate a duet (per the Inuit)
