[thewire] atonal rap/hip-hop -Huutajat
- An esoteric request: does anyone know of any atonal hip-hop/rap out in
the greater musical universe? this is an absolutely serious request.
> A quite serious answer; F Mans choir "Huutajat" (Finnish for "Cryers") ofa small Finnish city does national anthems in a rap style a capella.Dunno if
it fits the descriprion, but the opera after Chekov's Three sisters" and
more chamber works by a Russian composer Vladimir Tarnopolski incorporates
not operatic "parlando rubato" but the stylized rap - one piece was
performed at the Seattle Icebreaker Festival this February. In the opera
the action takers place in the past ,present and future - the act about the
future is in rap ,quite atonal (sort of Stockhausen). But this work is not
hip hop, just the manner of delivering "lyrics"
