Composed and Performed by RAC/Andre Anjos

Inspired by the Mark di Suvero sculpture

Some compositions in this collection hue closer to the stories about the individual artworks and play a real role in enhancing the narrative or uncovering new meanings to that narrative.

That is certainly one way to approach the problem, but that is not quite what is happening in Andre Anjos’ Aesops Fables. Inspired by the sculpture by Mark di Suvero, this composition is all about the synthesis of process and materials. This composition, much like the sculpture by which it is inspired, has enormous weight and power. One can hear the sounds of steel manufacturing: trip hammers, rivet guns, acetylene welding torches, and beautifully colored parks bouncing off the concrete floor. All these sonic cues are tied together by a powerful drum beat that sounds as if large girders, swinging from massive cranes, slam together midair.
