Dance for Sarah

Description: Recording of Arthur Kreiger's Dance for Sarah. This piece explores a rich palette of electronic sounds - sounds whose timbral elements are in a constant state of flux in contrast to those which appear in a more steady - state fashion - sounds that utilize the upper registers of the spectrum set against those giving emphasis to the bass tessitura - sounds played in the most delicate pianissimo opposing those of a loud and raucous character. The form of "Dance for Sarah" is a modified ternary structure. The middle section closes with a crashing glissando that is followed by silence. A quiet high-pitched envelope emerges from this silence opening the final section of the piece while creating an aural reference to the beginning gesture of the composition. The final section contains a noisy, flamboyant climax. The energy of this climax is soon spent ant the piece gently fades.

Darkness after Time's Colours

Description: Recording of Denis Smalley's Darkness after Time's Colours. The piece can be looked on as a vocal journey which passes through various 'ordeals' and encounters, hence the title's allusion to the journey down into Classical underworld. The sound material of this piece grew out of live electroacoustic work Pneuma whose five vocalists elaborate a language of air sounds, unvoiced consonants and vocal harmonics, and play talking drums from India and Ghana, tuning forks, Chinese gongs and tam-tam. Many of these sounds formed a starting point for this piece - gong strokes, vocal air sounds, air blown on the skins of drums, rotations around drum skins, unvoiced consonants, and tuning fork pulsations - but have often been altered in shape and substance by electroacoustic transformation. New sounds extend, imitate, and penetrate the source sounds elaborating an ambiguous sound symbolism.

Metamorphosis III

Description: Recording of John Winiarz's Metamorphosis III. This piece is the last and most concise work from a series begun in 1974. The idea was inspired by an experimental film made by an artist friend in which the beautiful figure of a greyhound dog in flight is transformed into a kaleidoscope of colors and nebulous shapes. An intense aural experience is achieved by a sharp juxtaposition of the humorous and the serious. The piece is composed using a mixture of concrete and electronic material. Tape loops, speed changes, splicing, and filtering techniques were used. Equipment included three stereo tape recorders, a mixer, EMS synthesizer, and a Burwin filter.
