Skelelemedania

Description: Recording of Hal Freedman's Skelelemedania. This piece falls into three sections; the first and third combine live and tape sounds, and the second is for tape alone. The piece as a whole represents an expansion of the middle tape section. The more purely electronic layers were composed to complement or contrast with the vocal elements. The first and third sections make use of tape echo and delay systems. The timing of the repetitions allow the delay to be heard not as feedback but as a continuous evolution of texture and harmonic, melodic, and contrapuntal interplay.

Solipsismo

Description: Recording of Bruno D'Auzon's Solipsismo. This work combines a finished text (in Portuguese) and its relation to a musical context. The composer has tried to combine the movement between sounds and speech, a poetic language without concern for meaning and in which sound objects or musical phrases may more easily support a concept or an image than words. The piece is divided into five parts, with the middle part playing a relaxing role where the theme is no longer human language.

Simple Electronic Symphony

Description: Recording of Miroslav Bázlik's Simple Electronic Symphony. This piece is arranged into four rather independent parts: Sonata, Cantus firmus, Madrigal and Ciaccona, designations of which reveal the author's effort to make the cyclic form of a symphony. The polarity of traditional and unconventional can be found also in the use of vocal or pre-composed material in a variety of transformations by studio means so that the cycle loses neither homogeneity nor tension.

Tramos

Description: Recording of Eduardo Bértola's Tramos for tape. The piece was made from two sound sources: radio broadcasts and direct recordings of popular events. These materials were structured by simple juxtaposition excluding the mixes and any kind of development of the original sound. It is therefor a purely horizontal structure in which we note the union of fragments of hard edge, perfectly delimited, similar to that used in some works of North American Pop Art. In this way, Bértola expresses his own point of view on the cultural significance and the non-significance of radio mass media in the countries of Latin America.

Tu viens chéri(e)

Description: Recording of Bernard Heidsieck's Tu viens chéri(e). The composer recorded 5 men and 5 women saying the sentence "Tu viens, chéri(e)" 150 times in a row and then combined this recording with mixed tape. The tape is stereo, with the women at the beginning on one track and the men on another, until all voices are together on both tracks. The entire piece represents a verbal orgasm with an unexpected phenomenon of more panic in each voice than of tenderness.

Ta Foneenta

Description: Recording of Iván Patachich's Ta Foneenta. The base of the work forms a mathematical series. The sound material of the work consists of vowels, synthetic sounds, and Morgenstern's poem "The Great Lalula." The construction of the work is two-channel and panoramic and constructed spatial movement are also often used. Sound units present in the molded parts are microstructures. The work has a so-called bridge shape, so the eleventh molding is a variation and mirror image of the first part, the tenth molding varies the second, and so forth. The sixth molding is the highlight of the work.
