Warrior Caste: Early Makams

This historical work documents the melodic improvisations and experiments in new directions in Turkish modal music by Eliot Bates and Brad Wright. Completed in 1999, the Intervals project was an improvisatory, electronically treated side project from their main group, Farabi, which was one of the better known American groups performing middle-eastern music. This CD captured 3 "Calls to prayer," in makams Hicazkar, Sabah, and Krd, and 4 "Meditations," in makams Uşşak, Şhehnaz, Hicaz, and Hüzzam.

Warrior Caste: The Getter Album

This sound sculpture used acoustic feedback to allow wind instrumentalist Joseph Getter to accompany himself, live, on clarinet and ocarina. Thus, you hear the sound of the clarinet interacting with and charting the very unique acoustic spaces of Wesleyan University. The work sounds simultaneously acoustic and electronic (though no keyboards or samplers were used), improvisatory and composed.

Remastered in 2004 by Eliot Bates at Radical House studios.
