Electronic music 18, Em 18 Change Circle - an Opposition of passions, and a gross Fuge !
Disc 1. 01 Change Circle - Rh 221. A Change Circle is a group who Ring in the Changes in a bell tower, Campanologists or Change Ringers, a ring of changes being the order in which the bells are to be rung in a cycle or 'Change'. Here we have a euphoria of bell tones, a celebration.
02. Gross Fuge (slight return) - Rh 219. If Jimi Hendrix were to play Beethoven's magnificent Op. 133, it might well sound something like this, I created this just to test the studio, but I'm glad I did and I rather like it, it has an aesthetic all of its own. It has no links to either Change Circle or Pattern Dance, except that it is from the Em studio at exactly this time, so as an acknowledged work, it took the number it did, and slotted in here.
Disc 2. Pattern Dance - Rh 222. The Sister Piece to Change Circle, very different in character and outlook, and the two belong together, so Em 18 became a Double Album.
