A Time Before Language
Kara does not merely copy the practices of the classical period for here we find gothic motivic writing with a noted absence of suspensions as the primary tonal devices. As in Breathless again Kara provides a great sense of fluidity with her evolving use of rhythmic modes.
The Talkabout Station
Such an interesting composition, so atmospheric with the icy piano notes dominating amid a rousing background of earthy orchestrals... then suddenly, a modern twist as the slicing drums enter. Imagine a scene from a dramatic film with this following the action! A great piece for our new Salon of culture.
