Robert Ashley 'Private Parts'

Ashley remains an overlooked composer, whose explorations of the written/spoken word and it's role in music were well ahead of his time.
His contemporaries, whom he stood quite apart from, still overshadow his work (Glass, Cage, Monk, etc)
This is an adapted version of his opera, Private Parts.

This is an excellent document by Peter Greenaway on the opera mentioned above:
