Haauqui

Description: Recording of Graciela Paraskevaídis's Haauqui (pronounced Wauki or Ouaouki) for two-track tape.

Matin, matinée, soirée, nuit

Description: Recording of Bohdan Mazurek's "Matin, matinée, soirée, nuit." It is a work for children who conform to the adopted principles which should be of aesthetic values to initiate the broader sense of the term music. Mazurek introduced program elements to the music in order to train the young listener to attain the sense of psychological concentration needed for the perception of music. The musical layer lacks a homogeneous style, which results from the preconceived idea the diversity of functions that must be fulfilled by music ranging from an autonomous role to mere illustration. The sound material ranges from instrumental sounds (both natural and transformed), human voice, and sounds of electronic origin in which often by their character recall birds singing, frogs croaking, and instruments playing. The piece, which is in four distinct sections, was commissioned by the Redaction of Children's Programs of Polish Broadcasting and written in November 1979 at the Experimental Studio.

Rupestre en el futuro

Description: Recording of Joaquin Orellana's "Rupestre en el futuro" for tape. Extra-musically, the piece is a "testimony of place" in a surrealist picture of a social situation, namely, the development of humans. The beginning of the piece uses phonemes in indigenous languages (Quiché, Tzutujil) and special instruments made by the composer to simulate the sounds of "a supposed primitive man."

Ice breaker

Description: Recording of Kevin Jones's Ice breaker. Jones had just traveled from Helsinki to Stockholm by boat across the frozen Baltic Sea, which had been made more difficult due to a strike of icebreaker crews. During the crossing, the magical and mysterious sight of distant plains of ice reflecting the ship's searchlights contrasted strongly with the occasional violent thrusts of the bows ramming into thickly packed ice. The "ice breaker" concept also extends into the interpretation of breaking ice in social relationships. The piece builds up into a succession of waves or thrusts, which eventually break through into a teasing catharsis. A doubtful release unravels in an extended coda. It was realized at the studios of EMS (Electronic Music Studios) in Stockholm, Sweden in March 1980 on a PDP15 computer employed to control a bank of oscillators.

Fresca

Description: Recording of Liviu Dandara's Fresca. Fresca synthesizes folk sound phenomena that accompany the daily events of Romanians. There are three intensity curves, proportionally equal. They correspond to the songs/signals of work, funeral music, and love songs. The dynamic culmination is reached in the same section, which interferes with the space and time of the folk festival. The final represents the filtering of a reverberation of the culmination of the work, accompanied by fragments of the motive-echo, which suggests permanence.
