ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
On the first CD, the PUBLIQuartet perform each of Soldier’s three full string quartets, each in five movements, written between 1988 and 2011.
The second quartet, Bambaataa Variations (1992) was inspired by the early hip-hop of the time and uses themes that Afrika Bambaataa used that he in turn took from other sources, such as riffs from Kraftwerk, as well as a theme from Muddy Waters. The final set of variations is on a theme by Soldier that ends with a joke on how to end an extended piece.
East St. Louis 1968 (1999) for quartet playing and recording is a portrait of Soldier’s experiences growing up in that area.
The Essential Quartet (Quartet #3, 2011) is constructed from the second movement of Arnold Schoenberg’s second quartet. As in the Variations on a Minute Waltz on the piano recording, these go beyond Schoenberg’s math, with calculus variations and a fractal version of the first five notes of Schoenberg’s piece played in four different time scales to create a complex pattern that never repeats. The first movement can be performed as the musicians trigger their phrases using electroencephalograms, a technology Soldier and Brad Garton developed as the Brainwave Music Project.
The second and third CDs represent a wide variety of compositions and arrangements by Soldier for his quartet in the 80’s and 90’s, for which he played second violin. The group, sometimes labeled “The Ramones of Classical Music”, performed in rock clubs and concert halls and included Regina Carter, Todd Reynolds and others who continued on some of these paths: the incorporation of R&B, punk rock, deep blues, and noise, into the compositions has not been superseded.
Some highlights are Ezekiel Saw the Wheel with Amina Claudine Myers as guest vocalist, Sequence Girls a 1985 piece inspired by the first female hip hop group, and a transcription of Bo Diddley, whom Soldier played guitar for featuring vocals by Tiye’ Giraud and a nice solo by Regina Carter.
