Jackson Mac Low (1922-2004) and Anne Tardos



Open Secrets (1993, Experimental Intermedia)

Open Secrets features Jackson Mac Low and Anne Tardos performing works for multi-track voices; and Robert Bethea, Andrew Bolotowsky, Daniel Goode, and Gabriela Klassen performing instrumental pieces. Winds/Instruments for flute, clarinet, trombone, violin, and narrator, could well become a classic of new music, not only being beautiful, but also displaying Mac Low's witty use and love of words.
