My Hilltown New Music Festival contribution - the "easy listening" version of an indeterminate algorithmic composition
Schaeffer assembled music from pre-recorded sounds which mean something, like words in a dictionary do. Instruments, to him, are different - they say "lalala".
In response to Schaeffer's views, I composed Not Lalala: music for recorded sounds of instruments which are _not_ being played. For this version I used a Soprano Saxophone.
