Crumb’s music is focused oncreating new sonorities. It also explored theatrical concepts. He won a PulitzerPrize in 1968 forEchoes of Time and the River. His use of contemporarytechniques for expressive ends is extremely effective with audiences.b.Avant-garde: new and unusual experimental ideas in the artsc.In this piece I heard a soprano voice, piccolo, marimba, glockenspiel, and antiquecymbals. The piccolo player is playing a technique here called flutter-tonguing:quickly moving the tongue as though “rolling an R” while blowing into theinstrument.d.This piece is based off of poetry by Federico Garcia Lorca. This piece creates ahair-raising image of death. Crumb uses two refrains from the poem and healternates between them: “Little black horse, where are you taking your deadrider? Little cold horse. What a scent of knife-blossom!”e.I liked this piece. I really liked the animated feel it had.
