PANIC 2000 (2000)
4. ELECTRO-BEAT - 13 MINUTES
The music is divided into four continuous sections of approximately three minutes each. DIGI-SIREN: announcing the soloist’s primitive métier; DIGI-BOP: a common ground between 1940’s Bebop Jazz and 1960’s Frequency Modulated sequences, including some asymmetrical exchanges that are strangely reminiscent to trading 8’s; GLI-DIGI-SANDO: some softer, cool lines, affected blue notes, with the soloist trying to swing; ELECTRO-BEAT: a finale, creating a fairly dense marriage between various genres of the 1960’s pop world.
In addition to all the obvious and subliminal influences that lead to this piece, the work of Elvin Jones and Ginger Baker deserve mention.
