[Back to Works]

Under The Rainbow (2002)

This div will be replaced

Instrumentation: Flute/Bass or Alto Flute/Piccolo (one Player), and Pre-Recorded CD
Duration: 14’
Commission: Commissioned by Patti Monson.
Notes:Under The Rainbow draws heavily from popular culture; the piece references techno, IDM, karaoke, lounge, and cartoon music, with short guest appearances from Porky Pig and the cast from the film The Wizard of Oz. Special thanks goes to my daughters Sara Rosenblum, for her cockamamie voice sound effects and original cartoon characters, and Anna Rosenblum, for her guest karaoke poetry recitation (at the mythical Asian night club).
