1...789

Description: Haris XANTHOUDAKIS: 1 ... 789 It is the setting to music (of the "setting in rhythm", more precisely) of two Greek texts talking about the French revolution and illustrating two opposite aspects of its impact in Greece, still occupied by the Turks, of the end of the seventeenth century: a "Patriarchal letter" (sort of circular of the Patriarch of Constantinople, to read in the Orthodox churches), condemning the French who "practiced the fraticide, killed their king and lost their faith in God" (in this order) and, on the other hand, a poem by Antonios Martelaos (1754-1818), congratulating the French for having shed blood for the freedom of the people. The first text is played at the beginning and end of the song (phonetically reversed and in a normal voice, respectively). The other forms slowly, parallel to a rhythmic accompaniment, of "disco" nature. This double reconstitution will be done in steps of proportion 1: 2: 3: ...: 7: 8: 9. A portion of this proportion, namely 1: 7: 8: 9, serves to generate an interval pattern (semitone, fifth, sixth minor, sixth major) that appears in both its sequential and simultaneous forms. Repetitive music, "disco" music, serial music, for a piece that wants to celebrate a bicentennial, its contradictory way, while keeping its distance.

3 elektronische Studien

Description: Recording of Lothar Voigtländer's 3 elektronische Studien. The basis for the composition are the poems of the poet Erich Arendt. The poems were written around 1925 in his Expressionist creative period. Accordingly, the compositional means: concrete musical material is mixed with electronic sounds to achieve a strongly expressive and suggestive associative effect. It is less thought of as a "setting" of the texts, but should be added to the often strongly symbolic language formulations as a different, musical dimension. The vocals and the piano usually work live. The piano is mostly treated as unrecognizable - this is to achieve a seamless insertion into the electro-acoustic sound material. In a performance, both piano and singer can be electro-acoustically amplified and to a lesser extent technically manipulated (reverberation, iteration, etc).

3 for 5

Description: Recording of Richard Zvonar's 3 for 5 for percussion, performed by Daryl Pratt. The piece is divided into three movements, with a different set of instruments for each. These are set up in three locations, which form an arc left to right across the performance area. Four playback speakers are situated beside and between the three playing locations. The tape sounds are entirely derived from recorded sounds of the percussion instruments. Throughout the piece, the live and recorded sounds continuously diverge as the piece progresses until at the end, the original sounds have been greatly expanded and enriched through speed transposition, mixing, filtering, etc.

3 pièces pour double basse et bande

Description: Recording of Orlando Jacinto Garcia's 3 pièces pour double basse et bande. Was written for bassist Robert Black and completed in the summer of 1990. The tape part was made using the bass player's recordings of brief musical pieces (i.e. tremolos, harmonics...) which were then digitized by the composer, sometimes transforming and mixing the material in layers of sound. The second of the three pieces is characteristic of a genre of glissandos, register changes, and also long holds both on tape and for the live double bass part. Great care as to the correctness of tone and the control of timbre is necessary on the part of the double bass player.

4 Piezas Instrumentales

Description: For being the round world, who walks away in the East looking for new landscapes, after many trips and adventures he will return to the starting point from the West ... perhaps without wanting to or looking for it. By listening to these 4 instrumental pieces, you will think that they consist of an interpretation made for traditional music instruments. However, for me, the composer is nothing but a new experience in the field of technological music. In this case the experimentation consists of a program that improvises, plays, exchanges in many different ways an initial succession of tones giving rise to very different sound tissues. It is an experiment of the same complexity and quality as others that I have used in the past and that have given me totally different sound results. In this case the experimentation uses shades of defined and adjustable height, creating clear intervalic, acordic, polyphonic organizations, etc. In this domain, a similarity with instrumental music is inevitably obtained. I did not want to avoid this reality using bands of noise or continuous changes of harmonicity, but, on the contrary, I highlight the winter using homogeneous sounds that parody some known acoustic instrument. The four instruments chosen are: Trumpet, Marimba, Voice and Guitar. These instruments are presets of the Yamaha DX7II with all its advantages and disadvantages. I chose a solo arrangement for each extremely sharp instrument in terms of interval discourse and thus obtain a better appreciation of the different games, canons, permutations, dynamic levels, ornamentations, etc., which developed the program. Each in semitones. The scores corresponding to the pieces of Trumpet, Marimba and Guitar are recorded on diskettes, constituting "tapeless music", bone music that can be played directly by operating the computer to the digital synthesizer. The vocal piece has been made in …

5 microinfinitos

Description: Recording of Sergio Rojas de Carvalmo's 5 microinfinitos. A constellation of 27 micro-songs exploring new flirtations between poetry and music. Built-in, forgotten electro-acoustic design; music free of any adjective, without any fear or melodies or even rhythmic pulsations where the eroticism of the body is expressed. Poetic language at the limits of conciseness, flirting with prose, far from any domestication of literary genres. Dialogues of contrasting cultural spaces, dialogues of dimensions and above all dialogues where reason and concepts are silent and where everything is mystery.

7 excerpts from "visual haïku"

Description: Recording of Warren Burt's 7 excerpts from "visual haïku". "Visual Haiku" was a set of 16 computer pieces made for Robert Randall's "Visual Haiku" project in 1994. All the music was made on various computer systems using software such as Band-in-a-Box, Sound Globs, M, Cool Edit and so on. Each of the "Visual Haiku" used algorithmic processes to assemble music which loudly and proudly proclaimed bad taste and slavish obeisance to commercial musical models, in keeping with the neo-Warholian aesthetic of Randall's work. "Visual Haiku" appear on the 2 CD set "Randelli's Selection" - on Scarlet Aardvark CD No. 47 A and B, available from www.warrenburt.com.

11 september

Description: Recording of Carl Bergstrøm-Nielsen's "11 september." The text is from a document called "What is MIR?" which was sent out illegally in Chile in 1974 and from the appeal of MIR two years after the taking over by the junta, on September 11, 1975. A left-wing party, MIR stayed in Chile in order to contribute as efficiently as possible to the building of the opposition. Other sound material also includes sounds from a typewriter and a demonstration at Bastad, Sweden in September 1975 at a tennis match between Sweden and Chile with more than 4,000 participants. The text is taken in small excerpts from the document in Spanish, English, Swedish, Danish, French, Dutch, and Icelandic. The piece consists of three sections overlapping each other gradually, which shows the relationship between the spoken words and the immediate danger connected with that text. The first section "as a spontaneous statement," deals with the document at its direct background: the silence is broken, in spite of the danger connected with the writing, manifolding papers that criticize the politics and methods of the junta and discuss the strategy of the opposition. The second section deals with the document as a medium of discussion. At the end of this section, the "media-environment," "almost as a magazine on foreign affairs," is broken by shouts from the demonstration at the Bastad which were heard directly in Chilean TV. The third section is about the appeal of MIR as a direct request to the audience: to isolate the junta through a boycott of Chilean products and through demanding from national politicians to break the silence which has long been maintained, among other places in the United Nations of which Chile is still a member. Inspiration for the piece came from the composer's participation in the activities of the …
