Last Child CD cover

Claudio Pompili - The Last Child...flight of the swallows: Live Preview (doppio parallelo) 2000

Claudio Pompili - The Last Child...flight of the swallows: Live Preview (doppio parallelo) 2000. A vox-opera-club-cabaret for mixed-media/electroacoustic performance - singer, eight classical and jazz musicians, a DJ, a dancer. Additional composition (minor) by Julian Ferraretto. Text by Linda Marie Walker. Sound design and recording engineer by Claudio Pompili. Sound mixer: Daniele Di Giovanni. Total duration [ca.52:00]. Music performance led by Julian Ferraretto and Libby O'Donovan with acid funk band, Brewed, 2000 Telstra Adelaide Festival, Cargo Club, Adelaide, 3 March 2000.

The music of The Last Child acknowledges and celebrates many musics of the 20C-some consciously many only obliquely. The musical tapestry reflects the kaleidoscopic journey of the narrative and is in three sections, each cyclic in nature and as dynamic as a Calder mobile. A graphic score is the receptacle for the music of the acid funk band, Brewed, the Club DJ, and the recorded tracks.

A key metaphor of the text is the swallow and this imagery is used as a point of departure for aspects of the acid funk band music: at one moment fleeting and darting at others searing and angular, melancholy and haunting. Lines of force, yearning lyricism and continuous melody pervade the architectural musical space.

The centre of this 'invisible action' is the introspective narrative voice as expressed and performed by the singer's voice, the site of the drama as extruded via the vehicle of the text.

The Club DJ music co-exists simultaneously with the other musics; brief moments of convergence cameo the DJ in a collision of genres, media, timbres and performance practices.
