Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 8, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 32 THE IETHBRIDCE HERALD Wednesday, September I, 1971------------------------ Composer plans musical mosaic ol Canada Open your ears., eyes and nostrils to today By JI1CIIAEI. HKNXETT Canadian PITSS Staff Writer Composer Ilrcnl Slraughan wants serious nni-sic lovers to trade in (heir century acoustic equipment and open their ears, eyes and ncairils (o today. His Enlilony, a complex three years in Uie combines film, environment and sym- phony should do just Iliat if lie can raise for rehearsals and its 40-mmulc performance. He calls it a musical mosaic of Canada, a multi-senscry ex- ploration of our national ident- ity. His music explores the cul- ture and conflict of this coim- jry, from virgin beauly to in- dustrial and social blight: a Maritime jig i; superimposed on a jazz Indian rhythm, a so- norous Doukhobor hymn pre- faces a chorale-chant on the agony of Quebec, acrid pulp fumes waft over the audience to accompany a cacaphony of unbearable sound. "I want (o give Canadians something that's them, that talks about their says Straughan, 24. who came lo Sinicn Fraser University in Vancouver with a zoology de- gree and convinced SFU offi- cials his composition was the basis for a behavioral science (hcsis. "But I'm not happy compos- ing for one il's silly in the 20lh cenlury. If Beethoven were around, he'd have video tape recorders going in the background." SCOUHEl) COUNTRY Grants t o t a 11 i n g helped Knfilony become a reality. S'.raughan and his younger b'cther spent "75 gruelling days" scorning the country as far east as Louis- burg on Cape Breton Island with a IG-millimetrc camera to get the footage he wanted. In July, the remainder of the feet was shot on a trip to Yellowknifc. N.W.T. AlMtit one-third of it will lie used in the actual presenta- tion, flashing on four 11- by 22-foot overhead screens. Straughan calls himself a mediocre performer, a stale of mind acquired from piano lessons he attended regularly in Jasper, Alta., the milk and cookies" and later from a violin leacher with a penchant for rapping knuckles, in Ed- nicmliiii. "What people didn't under- sland was that interest was making new sounds all (.he lie "Tint's where I'm radically different from the performer. In fact, I feel very aliena'.cd from performers they can get great kicks out of doing something over and over and over until its' per- fect. "I can't sUind lo hear it twice. I'm not interested in perfecting it at all. I know I have to use [hose people and it's through hem that other people understand -ny work, but there's a horrible man- gling of sort of composer identities, or whatever, in these performance syn- dromes, like the standard music schools." STARTED IN EDMONTON Straughan discovered the world of sounds with the Ed- monton Junior Symphony, sit- ting in the second violin with his mouth open. His apprecia- tion of "this whole way of communicating thst I'd never been a part of was enhanced during his four years at the University of GET ME TO THE CHURCH ON TIME Rev. Douglas Schweyer, of the Si. Thomas Re- deemer Lutheran Church in St. Thomas, Ont., rides his son's bicycle lo church every sun- day "to fighf pollution." Rev. Schweyer claims "ils greal exercise first ihing in the morn- ing." Vatican denies report VATICAN CITY (AP) Tire Vatican denied Tuesday that it had anything to do with the hid- ing of Eva Peron's body. Breaking its silence on the un- expected return of the body of former Argentine dictator Juan Peron in Madrid last Friday, the Vatican secretariat of state issued a statement that the Holy See was not involved in the transporting and the secret bur- ial of the body in Italy, and had nothing to do with its return to Pcron in Madrid.

No. said that the late Pope Pius XII gave permission fcr the remains to be brought here from Argen- tina at the request of Gen. Pedro Aramburu. Aramburu helped overthrow Peron in 1955, three years after Eva's death. The reports said the body was shipped lo Italy 15 years ago, disguised as that of a nun, and plficed in a church cemetery on ths outskirts of Rome. An undertaker in Milan said Monday that Eva's body had been buried in a local cemetery in the name of Maria Magistris for 14 years. A local hearse driver said he took a body bear- ing that name to Spain last week. At the same time, the Vatican officially stated for the first time Uiat the excommunication of Pcron had been lilted in 19G3. Pcron was excommunicated by Pope Pius XII shortly before the Argentine dictator was top- pled in 1955. The reason was the Pcronist government's arrest of two bishops. The Vatican said today that it kept the move quiel in 19GH be- cause of the "delicate political" situation in Argentina at the time.
