The present pieces are taken from Mr. Cowell's incidental music for a production of Cocteau's play that was organized at the Cornish School in Seattle, Washington, in the spring of 1939. The choreography for the production was by Bonnie Bird, and John Cage was the musical director. The 'Ritournelle' is an example of Mr. Cowell's elastic form, invented for the purpose of efficient long-distance collaboration with choreographers or stage-directors. In this way, Martha Graham on the East Coast and Mr. Cowell on the West produced both 'Deep Song' and 'Immediate Tragedy.'.
