On going on

Access: Use of this item is restricted to the UNT Community
Recording of Javier Alvarez's On going on. For baritone saxophone and computer/tape. The piece puts forward the idea of ​​"out of sound" by juxtaposing the tempered saxophone played live with the computerized saxophone. The interaction between the two pieces ranges from minute changes in pitch to the clearly audible disagreement between them, especially evident in these sounds played in unison. This creates the evolution, sometimes with a tense atmosphere. This material is contrasted by percussive and rhythmic outbursts which in the context give stable harmonic cues.

Along the Texas Forts Trail

Access: Use of this item is restricted to the UNT Community
The task of providing military defense for the Texas Frontier was never an easy one because the territory was claimed by some of the greatest querrilla fighters of all times—the Comanches, Kiowas, Apaches, and Lipans. Protecting a line running from the Red River southwest to El Paso was an impossible task, but following the Mexican War the federal government attempted to do so by establishing a line of forts. During the Civil War the forts were virtually abandoned and the Indians once again ruled the area. Following the war when the military began to restore the old forts, they found that the Indians no longer fought with bows and arrows but shouldered the latest firearms. With their new weapons the Indians were able to inflict tremendous destruction, bringing demands from settlers for more protection. In the summer of 1866 a new line of forts appeared through central Texas under the leadership of General Philip H. Sheridan, commander of federal forces in Louisiana and Texas. Guardians of a raw young land and focal points of high adventure, the old forts were indispensable in their day of service and it is fitting that they be preserved. In and around the forts and …

Little Animals

Access: Use of this item is restricted to the UNT Community
Recording of Natasha Barrett's Little Animals. This work is an acousmatic composition. A forest of small creatures begin to transform and interact with their surrounding environment. Slowly, sound fragments lose their acoustic source-bond to leave the bare essence of their expressive content, and gradually unfold an abstract musical discourse. Flow characteristics, both intrinsic to the sound and freely imposed by the listener's own natural sense of time, gradually unfold, leaving an impression of personal interpretation combined with the feeling of being a passenger, carried through the music.
