Der Wrielschauplatz Lament

Description: The piece is comprised of four main elements: vocal chorus, spoken text, melodic percussion, and non-pitched percussive effects. The spoken text is a popular adaptation of Psalm 23 which is treated freely and recited in both English and German. The melodic percussion is a plucked-string and chime combination instrument (which sounds a bit "gamelan-esque"). And the percussive effects consist of various treatments of the other elements. A fifth element, a pitched white noise instrument with a moving center band width, forms the back drop for the work. As the title implies the work is a lament of war, in which the main elements weave in and out, fighting to gain prominence in the foreground and/or slipping away into the background. The form is basically that of an arch. The first half is dominated by percussive elements. At the top of the arch, vocal elements gradually take over to dominate the second half.

Senza Voci 3

Description: "Senza Voci 3" finishes the series "Senza Voci", three works that over the years have been made with various techniques, but which maintain unaltered some basic characteristics concerning the sound material and musical thought related to it. Especially, "Senza Voci 3" was realized at the CSC of the University of Padua, with the help of Sylviane Sapir on the real-time system that uses Giuseppe Di Giugno's 4I processor, controlled by a PDP 11 computer. The synthesis method is the amplitude modulation and the sound material is borrowed from the previous works: four sets of frequencies which from low to high, are called Alpha, Beta, Gamma, Delta. The relations of several degrees that take place between these sets define the articulation of the piece through a path traveled several times which goes from the individualization of single moving sound blocks to complex fusion. So this "Senza Voci is linked to the dominance of a guide set. If "Senza Voci 1", the guide set was Beta (in the middle register), "Senza Voci 2" Alpha (the most serious), the last "Senza Voci" are the Gamma and Delta sets that come to form the line important part of the speech. Another peculiarity: the extreme ductility with which the processor 4 I manipulates the envelopes, led me to play rather on the mode of attack of the sound. The whole piece returns in this aspect to the flavor of the attack of the sound of small bells and bells, either by approaching or moving away from the model. And from this dialectic is born, perhaps, and slowly develops a certain enjoyment of work. I would like to thank Giorgio Nottoli for the technical contribution he has kindly given me. G.B.

Tánce Polskie

Description: Polish Dances on tape by a priest Baki, eighteenth-in. Lithuanian Jesuit claim to share in the song quoted the preacher's views, although reluctant to accept the phenomenon, which, as they were forced to take on and the author of sermons-lines, and some contractors (Grazyna Barszczewska, Joanna Neuburg, Ania Zielinska, Krzysztof Kołbasiuk and Kazimierz WICHNIARZ) , and songwriter. The song also wishes to note the features that make the nearly 200 years, the Baka deserves exhumation: a clear pulse (blood punched in the mazurka and polonaise rhythm), a fresh breath of Jesuit methods of stick and carrot, lung after sarmacku their distended, his legs smartly pląsające in the "dance macabre" , head full of epithets manierystyczno-baroque, stomach and liver in the seasoned pleasures of this world, his hands a bit tired wygrażaniem and grzmoceniem pulpit with his fist in the window sill, but the ribald humor and heart of gold. Furthermore, the lack of addictions (except wierszoklec / hs / twem). Somewhat provincial manners (especially those rymotwórcze), the belief is highly structured (with the help of a simple odkrywczo genre), so eclectic as to be original. And above all - quite the contrary it - the joy of life, and I think especially this will be "Polish Dances". (Remarks on the death inevitable for all commonplace, the line expressed by Professor X. Bake poetic treatises, SJ, ed. Orgelbrand, Vilnius 1855, reprinted 1985 WAiF kompozytorce deliberately offered by Algirdas Pisarenko)

Faut que tu viennes à Vienne

Description: If I had some notes to say to introduce the listening, I would say that it is an entertaining music, almost "light" and a sound portrait of Vienna. The argument: a departure by train for Vienna and a wandering in the city. This music, I thought of it as a great resonance of meaning and sounds (the orchestrations of "Orient Express" are disseminated in each subsequent section). And then I tried to make polyphonies of "Acoustic Images" using very different materials: words with meaning, voice and languages, everyday sounds, sound objects or abstract frames, scenes played or scenes of life, song, culturally significant fragments ... And to make these universes meet, I looked for reports of writing spaces, rhythms and flow, stamps ...

Annazone

Description: "Annazone" (Anna area), analogue concept of proximity with Amazon (Brazil equatorial forest). The singer is of Brazilian origin. During early childhood, the singer was especially impressed by the songs and cries of the birds and insects of the Brazilian forest. This sound world is entangled on several levels (vegetation, smells, noise, light, humidity in constant variation with the hours of the day and the night.) It is astonishing how much the human being is first able listen carefully to the sounds emanating from the vegetation, countless insects and multicolored birds, then imitate them, while adding their own distorting imagination In the forest the signals are slightly redundant to convey intelligibility in this complex environment. The sounds emitted may seem "vocalic" by far (allusions to our vocabulary: Kiveliukiu, Piahiuhuu, Kaijakukike, Jokokoka, Karemu, Hojonga ...), but birds and insects emit all the vocabulary of electronic music, harmonic sound more or less complex, passing through all kinds of impulse sounds until approaching the modulated noises.The volubility is so great that the listener does not succeed. s always really listen to these sound messages and tends to interpret them, especially simplify them. The singer not only imitates the song of birds, but generates, by imagination, the sounds produced by plants, fruits, herbs, butterflies and insects. If the urbanized industrialized nature has lost the sonic relief (from top to bottom and from near and far to a screed of engine noises that closes the horizon), in the forest this sound space is wonderful. In the cultivated and abstract music almost always exists only one sound plane and when the listener crosses this melodic or structural plane, he falls into the noises of the room, or, if he listens to a disc, on the noise. If, in "Annazone", one abandons the foreground of the songs, the …

Antigone: Musique

Description: "Antigone: Musique" was designed to accompany an amateur production of the Cocteau piece. Whose convoluted intervals evoke me the sweet-mean smile of the dark forces that slumber in us. The vocal enchantments the actors themselves, which allows to lengthen the actors during the representation thus creating (at least I hope!) interesting ambiguities...

Antiguas Preguntas

Description: This work is inspired on some pre-Columbian conceptions: man submitted to the forces of a giving universe, yet one that is demanding at the same time. In such a situation, man understands that all security is an illusion, and needs some kind of ritual in order to reconcile the opposites, and to restore the equilibrium of the cosmos. These trusts are not only protected at different levels of the musical structure of the piece, they also orient the criteria employed in the construction of sounds, in an attempt to explore the marginal zones of sound generation with digital media.

Birds of the Cathedral

Description: We invest the birds of human qualities to create imaginary connections between them and the men. This is what the old storytellers did too, but at bottom the parable spoke of the relationship between man and man. Finally - through music - this piece also speaks about them and us. His composer has tried to pay attention to what the birds themselves know and can do for themselves: the melody, the rhythm, and the possible meanings of their intonation, which have been familiar to us for so long. This is not just the usual information of a coexistence of a million years. Precisely, what we pay attention to - here and now - is not something that is outside the limited world of man. Maybe it's something that exists in humans. This is in the depth of the unconscious, on which our existence of man is constructed. Whence these particular relations, these strange rhymes between the voice of man and that of the bird come from? The birds live around the cathedral already for a very long time. They were fluttering around her already when the towers rising to the heavens were still surrounded by a forest of scaffolds, and they enveloped men and stones in carpets of sounds intertwined with each other. The construction of the composition is based on a line with double variation. On the one hand, it comes from the world of human sounds, whose main theme could be even a Gregorian melody, and on the other side, the world of the sounds of birds. These two basic layers can be heard sometimes separately, reinforcing each other, one rhyming on the other, sometimes contrasting, emphasizing the correlation even in the latter case. So the game is played according to "decent" rules. The work uses as raw …

Bosco : jardín al compás del deseo

Description: “Bosco : jardín al compás del deseo” is based on Hyeronimus Bosch’s triptych and especially, the painting on the right, “Musicians’ Hell”. Instead of translating visual images into music, there has been a representation from the unconscious of some relevant aspects like human nature metaphors and the metamorphosis of the objects, the presence of unnoble metal waiting for the alchemic mutation, the oneiric, the fantastic. The characters dance at the hands of Bosco, a huge mask-ball in honor of the goddess Dinamo.

Divertimento for Dalle

Description: My work is dedicated to the memory of Uncle Dalle, who died last year. Uncle Dalle, whose real name was Carl Gustav Wahlqvist, was my father's best friend, already from his earliest childhood. Uncle Dalle was born in Stockholm in the house next to ours where my father and I both were born. Then a day came when he also became one of my dear friends, especially after the death of my father. Uncle Dalle was a wonderful and cheerful person, he was extremely gifted in society and was always passionate about communication and discussion about everything and anything with anyone around him - from the diet method to food alive from Ann Wigmore until the last financial scandal. Under this pleasant surface hid a volcano which sometimes erupted. The person who happened to be the target of such an explosion was really in the heat of the moment. Uncle Dalle also wrote little songs, mostly about his friends in the Stockholm archipelago where he spent a lot of time. In some cases, I helped him with music notation because he couldn't read music himself. The compositional work began in a mode of great despair, where the futility of existence completely penetrated every aspect of my life and my daily actions. However, during the realization, the "dark tone" gradually developed into a lighter tone and fortunately, the final result made the light atmosphere that we usually associate with a divertimento. The work is created in a way that would be better described as kinematic. Some "takes" or acoustic scenes were produced independently of the others and without a pre-established plan. A selection of these "takes" were put together in an overall form of four movements. The composition was commissioned by Svenska Rikskonserter and is completely produced in the Semicolon Studio …
