Corales poema sonoro

Description: Recording of Carlos Fariñas' and Sergio Barroso's Corales poema sonoro. This piece is excerpted from a show, "Dialogues," for band, instruments, images, and the public performed with Sergio Barroso in 1971. The sound poem is based on a montage of Cuban poems, which goes from a poetic enumeration of Cuban plants and trees to quotes from Macbeth and fragments of the Campaign Journal and other political narratives of José Martí (revolutionary, poet, founder of the Cuban Revolutionary Party, ideologist, pioneer of Latin strategic anti-imperialist thinking) written on the eve of his fall, fighting. Texts read, transformed concretely and electronically.

Sensors IV

Description: Recording of Alcides Lanza's Sensors IV performed in 1984 by the McGill Concert Choir, conducted by Christopher Reynolds. The tape was realized at the Composer's studio (SHELAN Studio) and McGill University EMS in Montreal, QC, Canada. The piece explores different techniques of vocal wiring, especially the relationship of semantics, languages, and memory. The word "Memory" constitutes the entire text for the piece - using letter sound, recombinations of the word, and adding syllables from other languages that share similar etymology. Recording of the word "memories" -- Meg Sheppard's voice -- is used in the realization of the piece.

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.

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.

Impossible a la x

Description: Recording of Joaquin Orellana Mejia's "Impossible a la x" ("Impossible to the X"). The piece raises the sonorous vision of a spiritual and violent situation, in which the primitive flows and their purity as a mimetic being and the "being children: are involved in clearly antithetical situations.

Tramos

Description: Recording of Eduardo Bértola's Tramos for tape. The piece was made from two sound sources: radio broadcasts and direct recordings of popular events. These materials were structured by simple juxtaposition excluding the mixes and any kind of development of the original sound. It is therefor a purely horizontal structure in which we note the union of fragments of hard edge, perfectly delimited, similar to that used in some works of North American Pop Art. In this way, Bértola expresses his own point of view on the cultural significance and the non-significance of radio mass media in the countries of Latin America.
