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.

Invocation

Description: Recording of Hugh Le Caine's Invocation. The piece opens with a trio of three recorded sounds: a glass that is broken with a hammer, a ping-pong ball hitting a racket, and a drop of water. These sounds are the "instruments" used throughout the piece. Drips are configured as fast ascending and descending glissandi. 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 sharp joints appears as sudden changes in channels multiply. The introduction of these gestures disrupts the orderly progression of loops and the inclusion of small strips of paper connected to the ribbon which produces rough and jerky sounds further accentuate this breaking effect. Towards the end of the piece, sustained sounds are played out in a chord, but as soon as this effect is installed, the tape slows down and stops, as if someone had unplugged the music player. Then we hear a particularly violent sound of glass breaking.
