Turkish-born musician and composer Ilhan Mimaroglu
worked extensively with electronic (tape) music. The two programmatic
pieces paired here are "To Kill a Sunrise," a dirge subtitled "Requiem
for Those Shot in the Back" with words borrowed from a poem by
Guatemalan guerilla poet Marco Antonio Flores, and "La Ruche," an
experiment of reminiscences titled after the famous building in Paris
that housed Picasso, Apollinaire and others.
