“The first pieces of the Differenz/Wiederholungs-Serie were composed by transcribing loop techniques of different turntable lists and filmmakers … What appealed to me especially was the concept of erratic, asymmetric loops corresponding to the crack in the groove or to the trembling of a malfunctioning CD player.” This idea has already spawned many parts of the DW, which bring to the fore a great variety of different phenomena of our noisy, sound-generating lives. In DW 8, the orchestra, “like to a gigantic turntable”, plays “lazy loops, those familiar sounds, which this repetitive context may give an entirely new reading.” DW 15 „is a middle cycle of four song-like pieces“, where the vocal part is suggestive of “the whispering insinuations of inner voices associated with voices of demons”. DW 3, like all the other pieces in the DW-series, “is a phenomenological investigation into the inner logic of the formation of the loop, where the narrative of differentiating segments alternates with microscopic details and repetitions thereof. The middle part of DW 3 is a simulation of granular loops, much like those flickering and jerking images of a VCR in pause mode.” (Bernhard Lang)
Recommendation
Pax Questuosa (1982) vividly tells “of the vicarious suffering for peace, which, while broken again and again, remains our only hope.” 
In 1951, after numerous solo compositions, Cage tried his hand at a piano concerto, naturally for the prepared variety. And in marked contrast to the concerto: Sixty-Eight
