for English horn and stereo tape

Lament, for English horn and tape, was composed in 1989 at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology's Media Lab using Barry Vercoe's Csound computer music synthesis language. The short, lyric work establishes a dreamy and evocative atmosphere using classical synthesis techniques. Consequently, the work contrasts Mr. Nelson's other electroacoustic compositions which are primarily concerned with digitally processing sampled instrumental sounds.
