"Omaggio a Jerry Lee Lewis" was composed in 1975 for stereo tape recorder. It is a "musique concrète" tape piece using a performance of "Whole Lotta" Shakin' Goin' On" by R 'n' R great Jerry Lee Lewis as its source material. No synthesizer or computer program was used to create the sounds - all of the new sound material coming exclusively from tape manipulations of the original recording. The mixing and recombination of this new vocabulary, as contrasted with the original boogie, then suggested the final composition. It was released on LP by CRI in 1977 and later on CD by ReR Megacorp. It is dedicated to Irina Harris and the Class of 1957, Central High School, Knoxville, Tennessee. It is equally indebted to Rock and Roll, 50's/60's avant garde tape music and, most likely, too many Mad magazines!
