Red Bird: A Document

1978

York: (available through) University of York Music Press.

An extensive study of the analogue work, Red Bird, by its composer. Subjects range from the work’s dramaturgy + synopsis to Wishart’s notion of the application of ‘contemporary mythology’ within electroacoustic music to in-depth discussions of the work’s materials, structure and technical approaches, in particular sound transformation procedures. Many of the concepts that form the basis of his later books are introduced in this early text.
