Sous le regard d'un soleil noir

Description: Recording of Francis Dhomont's "Sous le regard d'un soleil noir" )"Under the Glare of a Black Sun") performed by the speakers Pierre Louet, Marthe Forget, and Arthur Bergeron. This is the original recording of the piece that was created in 1982. The text is primarily by Ronald D. Laing and the piece also features quotes by Plato, Franz Kafka, and K. Georg Buchner. The eight sections of the work were inspired by reading the work of the psychiatrist and psychoanalyst Ronald D Laing. The eight sections of the piece are as follows: 1. Pareil a un voyageur perdu (Like a Traveler Who's Been Lost); 2. Engloutissement (Engulfment); 3. Arrête! Arrête! Elle me tue (Stop it. Stop it. She's Killing Me); 4. Implosion; 5. Le moi divisé (The Divided Self); 6. Citadelle intérieure (Inner Citadel); 7. Pétrification (Petrification); 8. Le message quand vient le soir (The Message at the Coming of Night). The piece focuses on the experience of schizophrenia, something Dhomont calles a "particular form of human tragedy... the dissolution of the being and the exploding of personality, where a universe of implacable confinement is constructed." The "clinical commentaries" of the narrators, as the comments of a therapist/coryphaeus (though not devoid of tenderness), serve as landmarks throughout the work, though they only serve to introduce the distance, using few caesuras that will spare pathos from pathetic, and in regard to ourselves, voyeurism. Dhomont describes the piece as being "the history of a shipwreck: the hallucinated derivation across an obsessional landscape where the note B-natural is the obsessed character, the tonic axis that binds together the eight sections." The veritable ostinato, an "Invention on one note," recalls the idea of Wozzeck by Alban Berg. The original version of "Sous Ie regard d'un soleil noir" was produced in 1979-80 in the studios ...

Dictée

Description: Recording of Bernard Gagnon's Dictée for tape. The majority of the material was executed in real time. The instruments used are voice, a pencil, and also a few oscillator sounds. An oscillator provided a wave that was delayed by tape, and then turned into a voltage to modulate the early sound: a self-modulating delay loop. The piece is a reflection on the anxiety of first learning to write as well as on the degrees of the distances of the writing. The dictation comes from a loudspeaker, while the writer's reactions and his perception of the loudspeaker are captured on the other channel using a microphone. We hear in succession and by degrees of writing: 1. The dictation only. 2. The presence of someone who listens. This presence is signaled by a microphone feedback on the other channel and then a cough. It is good here to specify that the feedback effects are voluntary and controlled. 3. The message changes channel because it becomes the pencil noise of the writer. 4. The transformations that the message undergoes as well as the act of writing of the character who, one realizes, dictates himself. 5. Echoes of his reactions, a kind of subjective consciousness. The subject is played with pencil. 6. Transformations of its same reactions. 7. A kind of connivance gun between dictator and dictation. 8. Bursting of personality.

Le soi, le choix et les autres

Description: Recording of Dimitrios Iatropoulos's "Le soi, le choix et les autres" ("The self, the choice and the others"), five songs composed on the voice of Tibby Sachet. Iatropoulos calls this work a "composition psychoacoustique" ("psychoacoustic composition"). It is a study on the expansion and travesty of the voice that corresponds to the continual contradiction between the self and the choice of the woman. The choices the woman is faced with it that of active/passive, dad/mom, woman/girl, self/others. It is a representation of average female forces in a medium social environment in a language that is not too formal and not too casual. The intensity of the sentences are amplified by the montage on the magnetic tape which reflects the speed of the woman's thoughts.

Son recif

Description: Recording of Jacqueline Ozanne's "Son recif" for voice and tape. This piece comes from a work on the myth of the sirens and includes texts written on this theme in their original languages. As the singer/speaker repeats the story, it is crossed by the sounds of these languages, by songs that cannot continue, as well as successive states of emotion. The electroacoustic tape plays a constant dramatic role: sometimes worrisome, sometimes reassuring, sometimes enveloping presences, it continually influences the interpreter in their vocal and dramatic production. The performance includes a video projection.

Tu viens chéri(e)

Description: Recording of Bernard Heidsieck's Tu viens chéri(e). The composer recorded 5 men and 5 women saying the sentence "Tu viens, chéri(e)" 150 times in a row and then combined this recording with mixed tape. The tape is stereo, with the women at the beginning on one track and the men on another, until all voices are together on both tracks. The entire piece represents a verbal orgasm with an unexpected phenomenon of more panic in each voice than of tenderness.
