Title: Science Is Only a Sometimes Friend
Artist: Siegel, Aaron
Label: CD Baby
UPC: 700261325248
Genre: Rock

Science is Only a Sometimes Friend was conceived of as an outdoor performance piece for eight glockenspiels and public performers and premiered at the 2009 Make Music New York Festival. This original version of the piece is inspired by the challenge of creating a specific sonic environment with live performers and, at the same time, inviting casual observers to contribute sounds of their own. The glockenspiels pulse together in steady time throughout the 45-minute performance as individual pitches enter and exit the thick texture, like characters walking on and off a stark geometric stage. The concert version of Science is Only a Sometimes Friend is scored for eight glockenspiels and organ, which replaces the secondary contributions of the public performers. The constant chiming of the glockenspiels creates a halo of harmonic activity around the performers that shifts depending upon the location of the listener. This mysterious whistle is anticipated, yet oddly vague, sometimes more present and other times hidden. The piece tests the science of attention and the counterpoint of daydreams.
