Relazioni-trasformazioni

Description: Recording of Albert Mayr's Relazioni-transformazioni. “Relationships-Transformations” is part of a series of works that are based on the TIME-ASPECTS text and thus start from the same basic hypothesis: highlighting the relationships that come into being between various sound events - or even visual, theatrical – in function of relationships between their organizations in time and subjective transformations - of such events that occur during the operation. This hypothesis is carried on with the use of a very small material, both for recorded and instrumental parts, without any virtuosity, even to avoid masking, with affirmative artisans, the state of erosion of making music today.

Any resemblance is purely coincidental

Description: Recording of Charles Dodge's "Any resemblance is purely coincidental" for tape. The piece aspires to represent the voice of Enrico Caruso in much the same way that Andy Warhol represented the figures of contemporary popular culture in his silk screen portraits: the voice is unmistakably that of Caruso, but with a difference. In "Any resemblance is purely coincidental," an operatic voice searches for an accompaniment: with the original orchestra, with copies of itself, with the piano, and with other computer sounds. The initial attempts are humorous; subsequently, other emotions are evoked until the loneliness of the "great performer" emerges. The voice is made with computer synthesis based on a 1907 recording of the aria "Vesti la giubba" from Ruggiero Leoncavallo's I Pagliacci sung by Enrico Caruso.
