Naïve Serial Music

Tchal-Kouyrouk, the trusty steed of Toshtuk, Giant of the Steppes, recovers his master’s soul which has been stolen; he then brings Toshtuk back to his wife Kenjeke, who is pregnant with the Giant’s child. In these distant times, the twelve-tone row was evidently already a historical necessity. The rules surrounding its worship are to be respected: never interrupt the twelve-tone row, never make irreverent remarks about it, never look at another system of pitch-organization, apply the model of the twelve-tone row to everything in the world to which it might be applicable.
