Houdini Rite

Margo Harms


MFA2 – School of Music – Performer Composer

The score calls for musicians to begin with their hands and feet bound behind their back while they try to play their instrument. Once they are unbound they may begin to play their instruments “correctly”. The piece ends once everyone is unbound. For additional sonic textures, the piece will be performed on top of a tarp. This is a piece by Hugh Shrapnel written in 1970.
