Face It

In the words of that memorable intro by the Monty Python crew: “And now, for something completely different,” here’s a composition that’s longer than three to five minutes and definitely not comedic.

Thanks to Emily E. Hogstad, intrepid researcher of women in music, author of the blog Song of the Lark, I was introduced to the late Else Marie Pade, Danish resistance fighter and a pioneer in electronic music.

Hogstad’s research is wonderful stuff.

Pade’s compositions are ear-opening, as well.

The piece I linked to here is a sonic representation of the ever-present creep of tyranny.
