The third in a series of works for organ by the contermporary American composer, Sydney Hodkinson. It is a powerful, stunning work for two organs ( the second organ may be live or recorded, and if so, a few electronic manipulations of the sound are employed). TALAYOT-Megalith III (Talayot is a large prehistoric stone hut consisting of many small rocks ) was commissioned by William Albright who premiered it in 1975. The composer comments about TALAYOT, Since 1968, I had been interested in both the simplest reduction of pitch materials and the employment of staticity within a given time-span... The aural effect striven for was not at all unlike walking around a Calder steel or a monolithic stone sculpture: huge, never changing, yet constantly different. For studios, colleges, professional, libraries. Difficult.
