Ann Hell: Lost Things
Here comes a set of stray pieces.
Music by Angel Ortega, 2001
A 5/4 oddity trying to be creepy, but it's probably just boring. Though it was fleshed in 2001, it includes some of my first melodies ever (invented when I was a boy and didn't even consider writing music).
Larghetto for Oboe and Strings
Music by Angel Ortega, 1993
I pretended to write a full three-movement oboe concerto, but that's all I got. It's not even a larghetto.
Music by Angel Ortega, 1988
Another one of my pathetic classic-wannabe tries. My poor musical equipment does not help. It's really that old; I wrote it while serving in the army. The actual recording was probably done several years after, but I don't remember when.
Sandra in the Box
Music and lyrics by Angel Ortega, 2001
I live inside a box Well, it's not much of a box but I live inside it anyway They put me here one day during the war saying my body was too damaged to go on by its own So someone thought it will be a good idea to test one of those life keeping devices New technology for old problems And took my mind and dropped my flesh; my name is Sandra and I'm made up of wires They talk to me from a network, from time to time Yes, I'm connected to a network; hundred of men a day are having sex with me using some new technology apparatus It hurts I'm something like a circus freak I don't have a body, but some machine recreates one to every horny bastard with a credit card that wants to fuck me I dream of pulling the plugs but I've no hand to do it If you read this message please spread it
