ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes

“Codex Suburbia” is a previously unreleased collection of 25 years of wind & choral music, many of them live performances from NY City or Buffalo, NY. Featuring live premiere performances in New York City & Buffalo, NY by "Harmonia Chamber Singers", "The American Festival of Microtonal Music" & "A Host of Others".

"White Guys Afraid of Blacks on TV”, “Lost Girls of Juarez” & “Men & Women” are all concert music pieces featuring chorus. They try to paint a soundscape for the human casualties caused by abuse of a gender or race.

"Codex Faenza”, a 15th Century collection of vocal & instrumental motets, was always an inspiration in that it mirrored vocal & instrumental performances of the exact same music.

Musically, "White Guys Afraid of Blacks on TV” has the Gabrieli-type brass groups & violin section comparing readings of the same music the chorus sings. White Guys performs the 3 verse settings in these incarnations, echoing the eternally hidden mutations of racism that crops up like cholera in the river flow of each new generation.

Facing it, mocking it, changing it, is the only cure. Violence against a race, violence against women, all require the fuel of disassociation: Separation makes abuse possible, the illusion that there a “them” exists. The only “them” are aliens, & Will Smith can handle that if the time comes. Hate fails miserably when folks sit down at a coffee shop & realize we're all just a bunch of well-meaning clowns trying to make a living in this world.
