Arcane Presents Lulu Hugh Le Caine

Arcane Presents Lulu (1956) (1:50) was Le Caine’s response to the use of barking of dogs in a recording of “Jingle Bells.” Le Caine found an “even more annoying sound,” coloratura screaming. The melody line is constructed, using the Multi-track, from the scream which ends Lulu’s part in Alban Berg’s opera.
