Schoenberg Is In The House is informally subtitled “for string quartet and cosmos”. The cosmos is from the Reaktor Space Modulator ensemble set to C whole tone and C# whole tone to give the complete chromatic gamut. The string quartet parts are Presence XT instruments playing the original, retrograde, inversion, retrograde inversion versions (at randomly selected transpositions) of a randomly generated 12-tone row.

Glenn Sogge recently retired to his childhood home on 6+ acres in the Pacific Northwest after decades of school, work, family, pets, and soccer refereeing in the Chicago area. Early in his career, he studied with Luciano Berio, Tom Willis, Jack Burnham, Frederic Rzewski, and Sonia Landy Sheridan. He also collaborated on performances with Robert Moran. The sounds of birds, wind, streams, squirrels, chickens, and the occasional coyote define the soundscape he is now immersed in. The woods and nearby mountains both obscure and highlight the horizons every day. Glenn has done collaborations with Cousin Silas, Candy L, Marco Lucchi, Lutz Thuns, Boson Spin, Jaime Munárriz, Tuonela, grum-pe, and many others in addition to extensive solo work. A recent activity has been creating the artwork for album covers for himself and others.
