The epic piece "Discoverie of Witchcraft" is cast in seven movements. Basically it follows a symphony form of four movements, the first being a sonata-allegro, the second a sonata-rondo, the third a scherzo and the last another sonata form, but these four large pieces are interrupted by three small folk-song styled acoustic pieces (Hags 1,2 and 3). The four larger pieces all use tone-rows as the basis for their composition and while exuding a hard-rock aggression and flaunting a plethora of odd-metered riffage, are at their core, atonal 12-tone compositions. The smaller Hags pieces are strictly diatonic and strongly rooted in a key. These disparate timbres contrast each other strongly and cause a strong motion of tension and release.
The words are based on Robert Scott's book, "The Discoverie of Witchcraft" and Ben Jonson's play "Masque of Queens". The whole idea of the piece was inspired by Robertson Davis's book, Mixture of Frailties.
Part 6: Hags 3
From Ben Jonson's (1572-1637) The Masque Of Queens
The scritch-owl's eggs and the feathers black.
Blood of the frog and the bones in his back.
The worm in the mouth of the dog's remains.
I killed a black cat and here are the brains.
I went to the toad breeds under the wall.
I charmed him out and he came at my call.
I scratched out the eyes of the owl before.
I tore the bat's wings; what would you have more.
Yes I have brought to help our vows, horned poppy and cypress boughs.
The fog-tree wild that grows on tombs,and juice that from the larch-tree comes.
Basilick's blood and the viper skin.
And now our orgies let's begin.

Steeped in dark cinematic soundscapes and complex, turn-on-a-dime arrangements, The Rebel Wheel features a frenetic mix of
rock aggression, complex compositions and unpredictable odd-meter vamps. Originally formed in 1991 as a fusion-based midi ensemble, the floating lineup has gradually focused on a modern, more performance-oriented, genre-blending Prog....more
