Cangelosi-Walking Left Handed (SCD)-B/V/P/CD - Product Information

The inspiration for Casey Cangelosi's piece Walking Left Handed comes from an actual interview with a young woman. Through a federally-funded research project, the woman tries to explain the effects of LSD on her perception. She insists that, although she is color-blind, she can now see and understand color. She even describes see one color in particular, orange. The composer was taken by the idea of doing something extreme or even dangerous for the purpose of revelation and furthering one's awareness.

Throughout the piece, the minor 2nd motivically attempts to smare one key area to another. The focus is not so much on the relationship between keys, but the doorway leading from one to the other. The pre-recorded tape (CD) will accentuate this as well; it's sounds are all acoustic and not digitally altered. LIke the minor 2nd, it is the hope of the composer that the tape will also serve as connective tissue from one world to the other (acoustic to electronic-acoustic in this case). The last connecting theme is found in the lighting; the transfer from natural light (candles) to electric light (the head lamp). The title Walking Left Handed refers to walking a left handed path. Taking an uncommon or forbidden journey in hopes of great results.
