Barry Truax - Temple

Duration: 15'29

8-channels tape

Temple is a soundscape composition composed of choral voices that takes place in the reverberant cathedral of San Bartolomeo, in Busetto, Italy. However, lacking any specific Christian reference, the work can be heard as a spiritual voyage in an imaginary temple whose acoustic properties not only reverberate the choral voices but reflect them back as ghostly after-images that suggest an inner space of vast dimensions. Original voice recordings by counter-tenor David Garfinkle, alto Sue McGowan, and bass Derrick Christian.
