Eugene O’Brien (24 aprile 1945): Taking Measures per ensemble da camera (1985). New Music Ensemble, dir. Melisse Brunet.
The piece’s principal theme was derived from another piece of the same composer, Black Fugatos. Because the composer was «taking measures» from an earlier piece, choreographer Albert Reid (with whom Eugene O’Brien collaborated, along with sculptor Paul Oberst) decided to give the new work that title; he liked the double entendre.
