82 pp. Previous owner’s signature on title page. For 14 winds, 5 percussionists, piano, and tape (electronically organized sounds). Dedicated to Red Heller. “All those that people traverse or may traverse: physical deserts, on the earth, in the sea, in the sky, of sand, of snow, of interstellar spaces or of great cities, but also those of the human spirit, of that distant inner space no telescope can reach, where one is alone.” —Varèse.
Chanson de Là-haut (“Song from On High” translated in Varese—Offrandes)
The Seine is asleep in the shadow of its bridges.I watch the earthe spinning,And I sound my trumpetToward all the seas.On the pathway of her perfumeAll the bees and all the words depart, Queen of the Polar Dawns,Rose of the Winds that Autumn withers!In my head a bird sings all year long.Vicente Huidobro
