Assassination of Angels

An electronic micro-opera for soprano, piano, organ, drum set,
turntables and manipulated motorcycle

 

I composed this piece in 1985-1986 as a kind of allegorical counter-argument to Ronald Reagan's (cynically appropriated) image of the United States as a "shining city on a hill".

Mouth That Tears The Land

< Mouth That Tears The Land YouTube >

An electronic micro-opera for clarinet, organ, helicopter, air raid siren, 

and the voices of Joseph McCarthy and Richard Nixon. 

 

Miller's 1988 downtown polemic weaves public speech into

a maze of saturation splicing, prejudicial editing and machine-induced

counterpoint.
