Description

Undine was commissioned by the Amsterdam Multi_Media Festival Committee "talking back to the media" in 1985.
The title of the work was not chosen solely on the basis of a possible link between women's voices, their regular frequency, and the medieval superstition of the Nymphs. The deepest symbolism lies in the belief of our fellow citizens in the Nymph "who tempt passengers to acquire a human soul by carrying a man's child", and the electroacoustic music whose attraction tempts the creator who wants to put a soul to it. Yamaha DX7 and synthi100 synthesizers are used in the production of the piece. Due to the non-use of a sequencer, a composer, being at the same time a performer, had to play the chosen material in real time and the recording channel by channel on a multitrack recording.
