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 resonances of dramatic gong-like attacks, noise contours, drums and percussion both real and synthetic, and the clavichord which provides a rich reservoir of sounds - deep clusters, sighing pitches, resonances truck on the soundboard, strings plucked and stroked. The clavichord sounds remain raw and untreated.

Rapid eye movement

Description: Recording of Roger Doyle's Rapid eye movement. The title refers to the type of sleep called "Rapid Eye Movement" or REM, which is dream sleep. During REM sleep, the muscles of the eyes move as though the dreamer were watching something. Structurally, the work is conceived in the same way as Déjà vu occurs in life. There are 30 or 40 instances of mysterious familiarities of the same sounds placed in totally different contexts. Like the human cell, any extract from the composition will reveal the main elements comprising it - the part reflects the whole.
