...for the time is at hand : An Original Musical Composition

Description: ...for the time is at hand : An Original Musical Composition, for orchestra and tape, is a single movement work in five overlapping sections with a total duration of approximately twenty minutes. Using a stochastic composition program written in Hewlett-Packard BASIC, the final chord of Stravinsky's Le Sacre du Printemps serves as a "seed" to generate the "pitch density" (vertical pitch distribution), "timbre density"(vertical instrument distribution), and dynamics of the work.

Antithesis: Composition for Chamber Orchestra

Description: Antithesis is a composition, approximately nine minutes long, for chamber orchestra (2 flutes, 2 oboes, 2 clarinets, 2 bassoons, 2 trumpets, 2 horns, 1 percussionist, prepared electronic tape and strings). Although not formally divided into movements, there are four major sections, analagous to the classical symphony. The primary thrust of the work is to juxtapose opposing timbres, rhythms, and modes of sound generation (instrumental versus electronic) in ways that lead one to another without formal harmonic or melodic logic.

Barisphère

Description: Recording of Zoltan Pongrácz's Barisphère. The work Barisphère is the central part of a cosmic series in three parts: Luna IX, Barisphère and The Big Bang. Its title refers to the central core of the earth, consisting of molten iron and nickel, with a diameter of about 30km. The composer's intention was to create, using electroacoustic means, a program music that excites the cosmic imagination of the listener. The sound material is made up of both synthetic and natural sounds rigorously structured by certain mathematical operations. Both rhythmically and formally, the proportions of the work are borrowed from the various measures of the earth. The treatments used are: transpositions, filtering, ring modulations, phase shifts, envelope transformations, feedback, reverberations, etc.
