Quick Overview

Bresnick's multi-media work for three singers, an actor, instrumental ensemble, and shadow puppets tells a Russian folk tale about a dangerous incident along the railroad. It is in Russian, Yiddish, and English. Der Signal has been performed (and championed) by Le Train Bleu, and ensemble formed and conducted by Ransom Wilson.. Der Signal is, as Bresnick allows, "low art," which was misconstrued by music critics, leading directly to Bresnick's later composition, High Art. Perhaps the use of shadow puppets should have been a clue. Dur.: 15'
