ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
ANOTHER DEFINITIVE PERFORMANCE BY "THE PACK" AND CONDUCTOR RANSOM WILSON...


-Notes from composer Randall Woolf:

"As I composed the music, I kept viewing the various images of women I had collected against different passages of the music. It became very important to me that the piece not present one idea of women but, rather, a constantly shifting, open-ended statement about women...how they are seen by men, by society, by each other, and how they see themselves. The music and images together create a collection of thoughts, feelings and associations about women, always being careful to avoid settling into one set point of view.

In addition to the orchestra, there is a digital audio soundtrack made of the sounds of women singing, in styles as diverse as country and western, gospel, new wave rock, blues, and renaissance madrigals."


Randall Woolf was born in Detroit. He discovered classical music for himself in college, having spent high school in the usual garage-rock bands. He studied composition privately from 1982 to 1987, taking 3 years of counterpoint and harmony lessons in the Schoenberg tradition with noted microtonalist and jazz visionary Joseph Maneri. he studied orchestration and composition privately with David Del Tredici. In a moment of weakness, he entered the Ph. D. program at Harvard in 1987, and escaped as quickly as possible, in 1990. In 1989, he was a fellow at Tanglewood, studying with Lukas Foss and Oliver Knussen. He resides in Brooklyn with his wife, pianist and ranteuse Kathleen Supové.

His music ranges from the purely traditional classical media such as string quartet and orchestra to the entirely electronic and theatrical, though he is happiest between these extremes. He is frequently performed throughout the united states by groups such as the Seattle Symphony, Pittsburgh New Music Ensemble, the Paul Dresher Ensemble, Bang On A Can/SPIT Orchestra, Northern Kentucky Symphony, California EAR Unit, American Composers Orchestra, Fulcrum Point, twisted tutu, Music at the Anthology, Basso Bongo, Cleveland Chamber Orchestra, Kansas City Symphony, New Millennium Ensemble, Dinosaur Annex, Boston Musica Viva, American Baroque, Dogs of Desire chamber orchestra, Northern Kentucky Symphony, Meridian Arts Ensemble, and the Society for New Music, among others.
