GOAT SHOULDER FOR TAPE IS DIVIDED INTO 7 SECTIONS:

(00:00–03:13) overture to act II

(03:13–11:41) petit polonaise / the aerolatte traumata

(11:41–29:16) 1001 assorted goat questions, a note regarding horses and two concluding dragon questions in brine

JUST IN TIME FOR CHRISTMAS SEVERAL YEARS AGO, ACT TWO OF DRENCHING'S PROPOSED OPERA VERITE TRILOGY, OF WHICH "GATE HOLDER FOR TAPE" IS THE OPENING SCHERZO.  THIS TIME THERE'S BOTH A PETIT AND A GRAND POLONAISE CONSTRUCTED FROM CELLO BATTERINGS, METAL PERCUSSION AND SINE WAV CHORD CYCLES WHICH REDRAWS "LES CORPS GLORIEUX" AS A BLEACHED FAUVIST NUDE ON A BED OF OLD PENCIL CASES.  AND NOT BEFORE TIME.  ELSEWHERE, THERE'S ELECTRO-WHISK-FUN, THE INEVITABLE DISTORTED BISCUIT TIN AND ALL THE UNLIKELY FORMAL ARCHITECHURE ONE WOULD ASSOCIATE WITH THIS ARTISTE.  IN A MANNER NOT UNLIKE THE FINAL SCENE OF "GREMLINS", THE CLOSING PASSAGES SET THE TONE FOR THE ARRIVAL OF THE FINAL ACT SOME TIME IN “THE FUTURE”.  THIS IS THE AUTHENTIC FACE OF OPERA FOR OUR CENTURY: SHAKE IN YOUR SHOES, BUREAUCRATS.

ORIGINAL LINER NOTES:

Welcome Back. Goat Shoulder For Tape is the sequel to Gate Holder For Tape and is, indissociably, the differential deplyment of tekkne-, of tecno-science or tele-technology. At its heart is the idea that normal analytical methods, traditional divisions between academic discourses and past and present cultural biases need to be re-examined. Its perpetual chugging minimalist rhythms suggest the relentless carousel of political life. Its synthesizer-boosted orchestral splendor evokes the statesman's empty bombast. And its gorgeously autumnal lyricism allows the characters to express their forlorn helplessness. Throughout, that strange voilin can dip deep into the viola range, and really massive big glissando slides go well on it. A gerundic switch in cultural anomie awakening your aporia. As such, I completely welcome a major subversion of meanings and stories, as such. A huge, sustained, radiant B-major chord swells inexorably while the soloist delivers his final rapturous thoughts. And the students changed me irrevocably.

T.H.F. Drenching, Proof of Concept Workstream Leader, December 2006.
