Album Summary

>Rosenboom, David : How Much Better if Plymouth Rock Had Landed on the Pilgrims
Performers Composer

Notes & Reviews:

David Rosenboom (b. 1947) has been widely acclaimed as an innovator in American experimental music since the 1960s. Although much of his work has been collaborative, virtually none of his large-scale collaborative works has hitherto been documented on record. 'How Much Better If Plymouth Rock Had Landed on the Pilgrims' is considered to be one of the most important of them, prompting the following review after a 1970 performance: "If there were a device whereby one could plug into the deepest levels of human consciousness, and then translate this input into sound, what we would hear would probably resemble 'How Much Better if Plymouth Rock Had Landed on the Pilgrims', the radical composition by David Rosenboom... this new music hurls a rejuvenated sensuality and mysticism." -The Washington Post
