The Ten Tape Compositions: Fat Millie's Lament, The Wasting of Lucrecetzia, For Harry, Lemon Drops, Dante's Joynte, Rerun, Mouthpiece II, Hiss, Few (in collaboration with Henri Chopin), and Kyrie. "Over his career, Kenneth Gaburo (1926-1993) produced a lot of electronic music. However, works for tape alone are fairly rare in his output. Over about a thirty-year period, ten works for solo tape were produced. Of the ten tape pieces, five were created in the mid-1960s at the University of Illinois, one was created in 1974-5 in his home studio in La Jolla, and four were made in the studio at the University of Iowa, Iowa City, which he directed during the 1980s and early 1990s. Not surprisingly for a composer whose stated aim was to blur the distinctions between language and music, six of the ten pieces feature an overt use of the voice, while two of the "purely electronic" pieces use timbres that are so vocal in character that one is constantly thrown back onto a consideration of Kenneth's main obsession, the voice. Only two of the pieces, both from the Illinois period, seem to not deal with the voice in any way
