Program Notes

Simple aleatoric devices and clever effects combine to tell the story of a haunted clock factory and its mischievous inhabitants. Beginning with the sound of a single clock, additional clocks seemingly come to life and join in, creating a chorus of clock effects including wind-up, grandfather and cuckoo clocks. The Dies Irae is presented throughout in various altered versions, adding to the somewhat diabolical nature of the scene.
