Tom Johnson

Music for 88

Label: XI Records

Format: CD

Genre: Compositional

In stock


Simplicity and clarity have always been among Tom Johnson's chief concerns as a composer. That concern led him to research number theory, particularly by Pascal, Fermat, and Euclid, and these sources suggested musical structures somewhat more complicated than those that he had used before. Music for 88 is the result of these researches. It contains nine sections (six of which are on this recording), each of which is a musical demonstration of a mathematical phenomenon.

Cat. number: XI 106
Year: 1992
Recorded at Studio de la Grand Armée, Paris, on May 7, 1990 and December 23, 1991.
