Since the late 1950s, he has been active with composers such as Robert Erickson and Pauline Oliveros, and in 1970 he graduated from Stanford University.The latest work from musician Loren Rush, founder of the Center for Computer Research in Music and Acoustics.Last year's album focused on orchestral performances, but this album takes a more minimal form.Below is a description of the label.

Composer Loren Rush (born 1935)'s Recital second release, 'Omaggio a Giuseppe Ungaretti', contrasts the orchestral grandeur of last year's LP, 'Dans le Sable', with the purity of just-intonation piano improvisation. It is a work. Since the late 2s, he has been active in the Bay Area new music scene with Terry Riley, Robert Erickson, and Pauline Oliveros, and in 1950 co-founded Stanford University's Center for Music and Acoustic Computer Research.His music has been performed by the Boston Symphony Orchestra, the New York Philharmonic Orchestra, the San Francisco Symphony Orchestra, and others.Although Rush's compositions are rarely published, he has earned the deep respect of his peers and colleagues over the decades.

The album draws its inspiration directly from the poems of Giuseppe Ungaretti (1888 Egypt - 1970 Italy) written in the trenches of World War I, L'allegria (Joy, 1914-1919). I have receivedDuring these grueling years, Ungaretti has created the most beautiful images of him imaginable, struggling to maintain his humanity by recalling his earlier experiences in Alexandria and Paris.Thus, he revolutionized Italian poetry and proved that the creation of beauty was the most effective life support and political advocacy. 


Veglia (night watchman)

All night
be by the side of a comrade
massacred
his growling mouth
pointed at the full moon

in my silence
i wrote a letter full of love

Never have I been so obsessed with life.

Rush's melancholic preludes are handled by Just Intonation's enhanced piano developed by the composer and Alfred Owens at the Good Sound Foundation.This process electronically enhances and enhances perceived resonance, sustain, color and expressiveness.Just intonation refers to a tuning method that achieves the maximum level of consonance and resonance by adjusting the pitch to the integer ratio of the harmonic overtone series, which is the natural vibration mode.The suite concludes with a silky chamber piece, "Matina (Morning)," which echoes Ungaretti's harsh words, "I illuminate me, vast."The addition of the violin and cello allows the listener to immerse themselves in a space of terror and beauty for a long time.

Recital:

"Omaggio a Giuseppe Ungaretti, the second Recital album of composer Loren Rush (b. 1935), contrasts the orchestral grandeur of last year's LP Dans le Sable with plaintive just intonation piano improvisations. Loren Rush has been active in the Bay Area new music scene since the late 1950s alongside composers such as Terry Riley, Robert Erickson, and Pauline Oliveros, and also co-founded Stanford University's Center for Computer Research in Music and Acoustics in 1975. His music has been performed by the Boston Symphony Orchestra, the New York Philharmonic Orchestra, and the San Francisco Symphony Orchestra. Though few of Rush's compositions have been published, he has garnered deep respect from his peers and colleagues over the decades.

The album is directly inspired by poems from “L'allegria” (The Joy, 1914-1919), the collection of poetry by Giuseppe Ungaretti (1888, Egypt – 1970, Italy) written in the trenches of World War I. During these brutal years Ungaretti struggled to maintain his humanity by creating the most beautiful images he could imagine and by recalling experiences of his earlier life in Alexandria and Paris. creation of beauty is the most effective life preserver and political statement.  


Veglia (Night Watch)

An entire night
cast beside a comrade
massacred,
his snarling mouth
turned to the full moon 

In my silence
I have written letters full of love

Never have I held so fast to life.

Rush's melancholy preludes are treated with The Enhanced Piano in Just Intonation, developed at Good Sound Foundation by the composer and Alfred Owens. The process electronically enhances and increases perceived resonance, sustaining, coloristic and expressive capabilities. Just intonation describes a system of tuning in which the greatest level of consonance and resonance is achieved by adjusting intervals to the whole-number ratios of the harmonic series, the natural mode of vibration. The suite concludes with the silken chamber piece Mattina (Morning), reflecting Ungaretti's stark words, “I illuminate me, with immensity.” The addition of violin and cello suspends the listener in a prolonged space of dread and beauty.
