From the recording The Fuzzy Dice Man Cometh
A 12-tone melody was derived from the roll of twelve musician’s dice. (Twelve 12-sided die, each side notated with a note from our chromatic scale.) Artistic liberty intervened and two notes were switched. Four underlying chords were determined by the dice as well by rolling four sets consisting of three dice. Artistic liberty was again applied to determine the triads. In the beginning the 12-note theme is stretched over 16 bars and later presented in 1/4, 1/8 and 1/16 note patterns in a fugue-like form.
Outside the serialism is the Tuba playing a melodic bass line based on the aforementioned triads and 12-tone theme. The Tuba is a sealed 55-gallon barrel holding back a chromatic beast wanting to free itself of the barrel’s melodic restraints. Toward the end of the “fugue” I thought the piece was going to explode.
The orchestration is designed to sound like a marching band, locked in step to the beat of an ominous bass drum , the instruments saying the same fearful thing, over and over, drumming it in, only with a different annoying tone of voice; especially that bitchy piccolo. Of course the marching band is a metaphor for the pundits that permeate our meta-media with their propaganda.
