Match - Monody I & Polyphony IV

Description: Recording of Nicolae Brânduș's Match - Monody I & Polyphony IV. It is a version dedicated to the Ensemble "Ars Nova" from Cluj, Romania and based on collages of traditional folk dances from Romania's northern area of Maramures and ancestral laments from the regions of Banat and Oltenia. The final tape was re-positioned in the frame of the performers' controlled improvisation live which follows the same principles of composition. It becames a sort of an ancestral memento to the momentary performing act. The music on the tape evolves from the natural sound of the folkloric sources, quoted as such, to its multiple subsequent electronic transformations,coming back to the same folkloric quotes in their natural sound at the end. All the process of transformations represent the pulsing and not pulsing metric type of musical activity (tempo strie and tempo lisse so as described by Pierre Boulez).
