Gavin Bryars | The Sinking Of The Titanic: Live In Bourges April 1990

New CD edition of a celebrated live performance of The Sinking Of The Titanic by acclaimed modern British composer Gavin Bryars. Originally released on Les Disques du Crepuscule, this extended 60 minute performance of Bryars' haunting masterpiece was recorded by the Gavin Bryars Ensemble at the French festival Le Printemps de Bourges in April 1990. The performance location was the Chateau D'Eau, a disused water tower.
Featured Ensemble musicians are Dave Smith, Roger Heaton, Martin Allen, Alexander Balanescu, Jon Carney and directed by Bryars himself. The Bourges recording is much longer than earlier versions of Titanic and takes account of the peculiar nature of the performing environment. The six musicians were located in the basement area of the three storey water tower, and the public heard the pieces through a specially designed sound system on the middle floor, although only after the sound had passed through the cavernous top floor.
This new CD edition features extensive liner notes by Bryars, as well as updated artwork.
