Transits élémentaires

Description: Recording of Francis Dhomont's "Transits élémentaires" ("Elementary Transits"). The piece is a question of a crossing that could be compared - very modestly - to that of Dante's Virgil. From fire through air, from central magma to the high layers of the atmosphere, the traveler crosses through then Alice's looking glass. The perception then becomes mental. At the formal level, the piece has five concave movements, all of unequal duration articulated by a constantly varied pattern, a sort of hin… more

'EQ' is studio slang for 'equalization - a more sophisticated version of the treble and bass controls on a domestic hi-f… more

The pulses of time

Description: Recording of Denis Smalley's The pulses of time. The piece reflects the varied behavior of pulses: the regular pulses of meter, the much slower pulses which pace sections of music, and pulses which form the interior character of sounds - the accelerating pulses of a bouncing sound, and the fast pulses creating the "grain" in sound textures. The different atmospheres in the work are generated by the major sound sources: the electronic bounced family of sounds, metallic harmonies which expand the… more

Invocation

Description: Recording of Hugh Le Caine's Invocation.

A series of chords is constructed from a sustained movement of glass stamps. The sound of the ping-pong ball - from the left to the right - gradually accelerates. Severe rumbling and … more

Neap Tide

Description: Recording of Jaap Vink's Neap Tide. Neap Tide is the last part of the bigger work "Tide" and can be considered an independent composition. Tide is based on Vink's preference for recursive processes, which stemmed from the fact that the material is directly accessible to the composer who can therefore stimulate the expressivity of the sound. While sounding complex, recursive sound means sound and its derivative can be, if desired, recorded on top of each other in one action so that the sound str… more

Gwendolyne descendue !

Description: Recording of Bernard Gagnon's "Gwendolyne descendue !" for tape. Gwendolyne is an underground comic character from the 1940s. Read first glance, her adventures only seem to be excuses for exploring the possibilities of bondage, but the unity of style pervading even the smallest symbols and the obstinate repetition within the strict limits of a closed world gives them an esoteric aspect that inspired the piece. It tells the story of the forced disappearance of the heroine. The piece is dedicated… more

A Vent

Description: Recording of Jonty Harrison's A Vent for oboe and tape, performed by Robin Canter, oboe. It is more accurately described as a tape piece with oboe since the tape carries the greater part of the musical argument and is never merely a background for an oboe solo. The necessity of breathing permeates the work.

Heikel which portrayed the Cheremis and Mordove peoples, Sirén was inspired to think of a new musical notation and to set one of these tapestries to music.
