Henk Badings - Electronic Ballet Music

Henk Badings

Electronic Ballet Music


Released: 19th May 2014 | 6 track ambient album

Henk Bading's Electronic Ballet Music was written in 1956 and was first given at a performance by the Netherlands Ballet during the Holland Festival that year. The underlying idea is of conflict between opposed forces. For the first performance, choreographer J.Zielstra chose the figures of Cain and Abel to personify this conflict.

The electronic devices used were sine-wave generators, multi-vibrators, noise generators, a photo-electric siren, an electornic clavichord and electric percussion instruments; orthodox instrumental sounds were transformed electronically. The devices used for processing the sounds included electrical filters, artificial reverberation machines, tape recorders and a ring modulator.
