An electroacoustic settinig of the Peter Oresick's Poem by the same title. Used by Permission.
The Story of Glass (1998) is an electroacoustic setting of the poem by Peter Oresick by the same title. Its creative germ came from the years when I lived in western Pennsylvania’s post-industrial Monongahela Valley. What I saw there in the early 90s made me want to compose a sort of requiem for the industrial society. The text of Oresick’s poem is juxtaposed with samples of famous requiems. The underlying loops are made from a synthesis of the human voice and samples of scraping metal.
