Description

Tuxedomoon - The Ghost Sonata

Mixing dialogue and musique concrete with both electronic and neo-classical music, ‘The Ghost Sonata’ is a primarily instrumental album that crosses all known boundaries to create possibly one of the most psychedelic symphonies ever waxed.

‘The Ghost Sonata’ is based on the group’s “opera without words” performed in 1982 at the Polverigi Theatre Festival in Italy. Though considered by many to be their best and most ambitious work, the soundtrack had not been released in its entirety until 1990.

Tuxedomoon core members Steven Brown, Blaine Reininger and Peter Principle entirely re-recorded all musical selections of the soundtrack during the latter half of 1990, while the linking narrative and sound-effects are taken from the original 1982 source tapes.
