Cuauhtémoc

Description: Recording of Antonio Mastrogiovanni's Cuauhtémoc. The work "Cuauhtémoc" is dedicated to this young Aztec king, who defended the city of Mexico against the Spanish conquerors commanded by Hernan Cortes. During the siege of this city, nine-tenths of the Aztec population was exterminated, and Cuauhtémoc himself was tortured and assassinated by Hernan Cortes. Three fragments of indigenous texts are used in the work: The first text is the one recited on the occasion of the birth of a Mexican child, and is mixed with the name Cuauhtemoc. The second text is a description of the Spanish army. The third text is a description of the city of Mexico after the cruel siege.

Sound Beach

Description: Recording of Stephen Dembski's Sound Beach. (Another division) perhaps two conceptions of electronic music? One in which the tape produced is the performance of a score (regardless of that scores actual existence), the second: where the tape is a score in sound to be performed by the listener as he heard it. In the first, micromanipulation of sound leads ideally to an electrically phrased, dramatic performance of musical ideas, which the listener hears in one specific manifestation, one of the innumerable possibilities of their performance. In the second, the same came in the maker's craft produces a shining crystalline structure, a geometrically exact pattern of sounds which will be performed, perceived into human elasticity, by the listener, and so, in the ear-mind of that person, specified into an exact, singular performance. Always interplay in either domain, of course: few pieces on tape rest entirely in either domain. Sound Beach is probably weighted towards the first; its particles were born in improvisation and later melded and performed to charge their interaction. And the present performance tape is a first one, a rough one: plenty of dirt and ragged ensemble. The work is dedicated to the composer's mother, Mina Dembski.

Diaphanes

Description: Recording of Michela Mollia's Diaphanes. This work involves a recorded part on magnetic tape, a live performer to an amplified tam-tam, and a filter assist. The live performance and recorded part consist of two sound levels that interact with each other, creating, however, a certain ambiguity that is created by the contemporary listening of such sound levels. A bandpass filter makes the two events strictly complementary to the materials obtained from the tam-tam. Additionally, African-speaking voices have been used on a metallic tape. The live performance and tape are distributed over two channels and reproduced with 4 speakers at the 4 corners of the used space.
