Curare II

Description: Recording of Rodolfo Caesar's Curare II. The piece is a revision of a work begun during the course at the GRM in 1975. It was finished in Rio de Janeiro. The piece uses three families of acoustic sounds: guitar and Jew's harp being two of these. Curare is a double-purpose substance used by the Amazonian Indians for combat; it is a deadly poison, and yet it also serves as an effective hallucinogen at feasts. The double aspects, the ambiguous atmosphere of certain passages, the evidence of others, and a thousand other parallels have been suggested the title for another work baptized after being created.

Harbinger

Description: Recording of Robin Julian Heifetz's Harbinger, performed by the University of Illinois Contemporary Chamber Players, under the direction of Paul Zonn. The work is for six bass instruments and tape. There are two trumpets, two french horns, and two trombones which have been split into two trios which are then positioned on opposite sides of the performing space in order to maximize and fully exploit the spatial disposition of the sound. This also facilitates performance because each trio has its own special relationship to each loudspeaker near where it sits. The performers read off the score so that they may see where they are in relation to the other performers, which also facilitates the performance in a purely visual way.

Study for horn and tape

Description: Recording of Jan Segers's Study for horn and tape performed by André van Driessche. The work was conceived as a study for the horn, accompanied by magnetic tape. Performance requires certain technical skills from the performer. The general form is A-B-A. The first A section consists of a note with semitone variation, which is then developed by the horn from pp to ff. The B section consists of rhythmic, contrapuntal variations alternating with "cantabile" passages, which could be considered a development of the previous A section. The second A section is a complete reversal of A1.

Partial Distances

Description: Recording of James Dashow's Partial Distances. It is the last purely analog electronic work Dashow composed. There are a few sounds in this piece generated by computer but significantly transformed and altered by analog techniques of one kind or another, such as dynamic filtering, delay line processing, extreme velocity manipulations, etc. The piece was made by the old tape cut and splice method, mixing and re-mixing pairs of ReVoxes onto a third one, and avoiding tape hiss with the newly invented dbx noise reduction box. The piece is in 4 sections, the first two blending smoothly into each other, and these are separated from the fourth by the giant multi-voiced "ostinato" movement that builds to the work's climax. The sounds are constructed from series of partials whose distances between each other vary from harmonic to inharmonic and are subsequently combined in a variety of ways. The title refers to distances between musical ideas and/or variants of the same idea, distances which are never extended, long, full or complete, despite what we say or do, but, like distances between people, only partial.
