Michael Lisle Dunn's Fourth Digitiphony is a journey through the seemingly disparate (hence the "Dichotomies" title of the Digitiphony) existential elements of 'Life', 'Soul', 'Commerce' and 'Art'.

Electro Orchestral Symphony in four parts
NOTES
The revised and extended version.

m l dunn’s first Digitiphony was performed and recorded by U Kay Hytz in 2009. Completely programmed using virtual orchestral sample libraries, electronica and a soupcon of real voices, his Second Digitiphony has more of an orchestral feel than the first, and is longer (40 minutes). Using the self imposed parameters of digitiphonic writing (see below), the four movements encapsulate the gamut of human emotional experience, from grief and despair through …
