This week’s truly unique selection comes straight out of DB 8, one of many notable works featured in this issue of Panliterary Award competitors. As the winner of the sound category, “Variations on a theme by Casey & Finch” is probably best explained by category judge Paul Miller:
“Based on the concept of a skipping CD, this piece is comprised of the samples from the chorus line of the KC and the Sunshine Band hit “That’s the Way I Like It” chopped up into small fragments, rearranged, scored for a 10 piece band, and then played and recorded live. Innovative and executed perfectly, it displays both depth of conceptual insight and musical precision.”
