Victories Over Us Jamie Philp

This is an excerpt from a composition for an installation presented at the 1991 Works Festival with Modern Dance Artist Brian Webb and visual artist Blair Brennan. The work started as improvisations using Laurie Spiegle’s Music Mouse and MIDI Paint. I used many sources of inspiration for the harmonic component: sound chords, mystic chords, quartal harmony and ethnic scales. On top of these short improvisations I built up parts on a variety of instruments including electric guitar, nose flutes, voice and zube tube, which added to the human quality of the piece. The text portions were selected from Evangelist surmons taken out of context. The work received an ARIA (Alberta Recording Industry Association) award in 1992.
