ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Giselle was created as a score for choreographer Brechin Flournoy's modern
adaptation of the classical ballet 'Giselle.' The story is based on an
obscure Eastern European folk tale.

The sixty minute score was composed and played by Peter Whitehead using a
variety of instruments which he either bought during his travels or
constructed himself. He also used a number of 'found' instruments and toys.
The result is a richly textured weave with a variety of timbres, all of
which blend together into a musical narrative which follows the story of
Giselle, a young peasant girl who dies of a broken heart and passes to the
underworld.

An extensive collection of percussion instruments gives the rhythms
distinct character and a number of unique bowed and plucked string
instruments, as well as winds, are used to create haunting melodies.

Albert Mathias

Another blessed work by the accomplished movement composer
This beautiful recording is organic and creative. Utilizes hand made instruments to create a unique and expressive aural atmosphere. Giselle reminds us Whitehead is at the cutting edge of the dance/theater field, a musician/composer who uses acoustic sensibilities to transform the listeners molecular structure. Giselle is excelent!!! BUY it now.
