Hymn for the Final Dinosaur (1970-71)

In 1967, Jean Eichelberger Ivey founded the Peabody Conservatory Electronic Music Studio. Source material consisting of taped jam sessions with cello, flute, and guitar combined with that derived from the then revolutionary Moog synthesizer resulted in the recorded portion of the present piece.

In concert, the live cello occupies the centre of the stereo image and the recorded material is spread from left to right. The volume should be set as loud as possible and the piece fully downloaded to achieve essential continuity. Watch on YouTube in HD for the highest quality audio.

    Well Robert , this is a side of you I did not know existed. That aside at the infancy of synthasizing music the feelings put across are very good. The combination of Cello and the synthasizer bring across the final moments of the final dinasour. When I get readjusted to this weirder side of you we should have a Sailor Jerry together !
