FRANCES-MARIE UITTI "THE SECOND BOW" (CRAMPS, 1980)





Two more in the Cramps thread...

This LP has never been reissued - not even in Japan, where almost all other Cramps releases saw the light of the day anew in 2007.

In 1995 Frances-Marie Uitti released a CD "2 Bows" (BvHaast) were she continued to examine the possibilities of playing with two bows at the same time. According her website you can get it from www.jdkproductions.com

If you like this LP you should certainly check it out.

More info and other CDs you can find on her own website > http://www.uitti.org/

I'd love a re-up of this, if possible! Frances-Marie is a real innovator and a lovely person. I asked her about this record, and she couldn't come up with a copy of it, so I come here!

thanks - is it just my ignorance or has the majority of new music since the '60s been favouring strings rather than woodwind or brass? percussion doesn't seem to do too badly. at one time i thought this was a good thing, but of late i've been longing to hear contemporary brass and would appreciate some recommendations i can track down. i hope i am wrong as reductionism of instrumentation seems limiting unless self-imposed for artistic reasons.
anyway, despite this, many thanks for the share which i am sure is a great listen!

Thaddeus Milne said...

Thanks much, guys! Just made it back here and found this! Vanusian: I think you have a point. As a composer myself, I find it easier to compose "contemporary sounding" music for strings, because the "contemporary tecniques" for strings are a bit more straightforward. Using the bow to scrape the strings, bounce the wood of the bow, use extra bow pressure to make a scratch tone, etc, etc are fairly easy to communicate. As a clarinetist, I can say that if a composer asks for a specific type of unusual sound, it can be quite hard to produce well. There are all manner of complicated breathing, tonguing, and multiphonic and microtonal fingerings available, to be sure, but one has to be a bit of a specialist to do most of those things at all well.
