Barry Schrader’s Moon-Whales

Sunday Synth Jam: This is the final movement of Barry Schrader’s Moon-Whales and Other Moon Songs (1982-83), based on poems by Ted Hughes.

The electronic music was created on a Buchla 200 system (Electric Music Box). Performers include Maurita Phillips-Thormburgh, soprano, and Michael Scroggins, live video processing.

This video is from a 1985 concert at CalArts that dealt with real-time video processing of live performances.
