The Distant Hills

... Rhoda heard neither the music itself , nor its echo among the mountains ; her ear was no longer awake to the distant melody — it had been too much deadened by the low and confused murmurs that issued from the ruin .

A Distant Flame

The heat was oppressive after the storm, and in the early afternoon sunlight, the yard before him seemed stunned, breathless with surrender, and insects hummed against the screen, a distant melody perhaps, like an unremarkable memory.

Tales of Heights and Depths

A dozen years ago, I read Cuentos de Cima y Sima in Spanish. I was struck by the imagery, lyricism, and natural dialogue, and began a translation to English. Later, while teaching at the American School in El Salvador, I became acquainted with the author’s grandson. We agreed that because Central American literature is almost unknown in the United States, it would be good to publish the Tales of Heights and Depths in English. Humberto Ibarra, a Salvadoran journalist who was exiled to Guatemala, later became the ambassador to Chile and to Argentina. He also wrote a book of poetry as well as a novel that portrays Zacatecoluca, his hometown, and deals with social justice. Guatemala is a land of enchantment, so it is not surprising to find zombies, witchcraft, and magic amid the Mayan ruins. I have chosen a pen name for my role as translator. Pax is my mother’s maiden name and seems to blend well with short Mayan surnames like Yoc and Tul. Jose Pax

A Musicology for Landscape

Alternation of more measured and spacious violence, now with monadic diatonic melody, accompanied first by rumblings, then by top register melody (now ppp). Long, timeless, exposition of serene but infinitely distant melody.

A Musicology for Landscape

Drawing conceptually and directly on music notation, this book investigates landscape architecture’s inherent temporality. It argues that the rich history of notating time in music provides a critical model for this under-researched and under-theorised aspect of landscape architecture, while also ennobling sound in the sensory appreciation of landscape. A Musicology for Landscape makes available to a wider landscape architecture and urban design audience the works of three influential composers – Morton Feldman, György Ligeti and Michael Finnissy – presenting a critical evaluation of their work within music, as well as a means in which it might be used in design research. Each of the musical scores is juxtaposed with design representations by Kevin Appleyard, Bernard Tschumi and William Kent, before the author examines four landscape spaces through the development of new landscape architectural notations. In doing so, this work offers valuable insights into the methods used by landscape architects for the benefit of musicians, and by bringing together musical composition and landscape architecture through notation, it affords a focused and sensitive exploration of temporality and sound in both fields.

Harrison Birtwistle The Mask of Orpheus

... a familiar but distant melody. It is akin to the mournful shepherd's song at the start of Act III of Tristan and Isolde, 'die alte Weise', which evokes a desolate sense of emptiness, of a wasteland.11 Orpheus, too, recognizes this.

Harrison Birtwistle  The Mask of Orpheus

Hailed at its premiere at the London Coliseum in 1986 as the most important musical and theatrical event of the decade, The Mask of Orpheus is undoubtedly a key work in Harrison Birtwistle's output. His subsequent stage and concert pieces demand to be evaluated in its light. Increasingly, it is also viewed as a key work in the development of opera since the Second World War, a work that pushed at the boundaries of what was possible in lyrical theatre. In its imaginative fusion of music, song, drama, myth, mime and electronics, it has become a beacon for many younger composers, and the object of wide critical attention. Jonathan Cross begins his detailed study of this 'lyric tragedy' by placing it in the wider context of the reception of the Orpheus myth. In particular, the significance of Orpheus for the twentieth century is discussed, and this provides the backdrop for an examination of Birtwistle's preoccupation with the story in a variety of works across his creative life. The sources and genesis of The Mask of Orpheus are explored. This is followed by a close reading of the work's three acts, analysing their structure and meaning, investigating the relationship between music, text and drama, drawing on Zinovieff's textual drafts and Birtwistle's compositional sketches. The book concludes by suggesting a range of contexts within which The Mask of Orpheus might be understood. Its central themes of time, memory and identity, loss, mourning and melancholy, touch a deep sensibility in late-modern society and culture. Interviews with the librettist and composer round off this important study.

Song of the Oktahutche

Distant Music I hear a distant melody And years come crowding back to me , Thro'vistas dim of memory , As ships to haven from the sea , 5 Each freighted with the dreams of youth , And moor them in the restless bay About my heart awhile ...

Song of the Oktahutche

Muscogee (Creek) writer and humorist Alexander Posey (1873–1908) lived most of his short but productive life in the Muscogee Nation, in what is now Oklahoma. He was an influential political spokesperson, an advocate for improving conditions in Indian Territory, and one of the most prominent American Indian literary figures of his era. One of Posey’s dearest subjects was the Oktahutche River, which he so loved that he gave it voice in his poem, “Song of the Oktahutche.” His poetry, drawing from Romantic European and Euro-American influences such as Robert Burns and John Greenleaf Whittier, became a sort of Indian Territory pastoral in which the Greek nymph Echo shares a river with Stechupco, the Tall Man spirit of the Muscogees. Song of the Oktahutche collects for the first time all of Posey’s poetry, which has until now been scattered in various rare volumes, either unpublished or replete with textual errors. His highly regarded poems constitute the largest body of Native poetry from the turn of the twentieth century. Matthew Wynn Sivils draws on extensive archival research to produce a complete, accurate, and meticulously annotated edition of Posey’s poetry that will further enrich and personalize the legacy of this remarkable Native author.
