Cirkelmusik for large Orchestra

Cirkelmusik utilized, among other things, a wandering sound (hence the name) that the musicians, positioned in a circle throughout the space, played quickly one after the other and that could also be alternated as far as the direction of the circular movement was concerned. A record player served as a newly discovered source of sound for an orchestra, and it was operated alternately by different musicinans. SÅJ
