The Phonograph

Program notes

Based on Rainer Maria Rilke Rilke's Primal Sound and a short French poem entitled Inscription by Charles Cros, The Phonograph marks the remarkable moment when sound becomes immortal. Halfway between narrative and musical reverie, this work is a nostalgic nod to the rudimentary recording mechanisms of the past and the wonder they inspired.
