DM VS Metal

Description: Recording of Alain Marchal's DM VS Metal. This piece is divided into 3 long parts of 4, 6 and a half and a half minute(s), connected without silence. It brings together percussion elements from different species, played and worked in time: a) a series of objects that do not belong to the violin making (plates, tubes, metal plates), b) a Jazz drums, c) metal instruments from groups a- and b- played and manipulated in the studio at the same time. This first part starts ppp and quickly reaches fff. The second part is composed of a metal percussion with very long resonance and treated in perpetual glissandi. The dynamics are variable. After a final f when we hear the small percussion in its initial state, the percussion of a- and b- of the first part return ffff.

Extension 1

Description: Recording of Zagorka Zivkovic's Extension 1 created at the Electronic Music Studio in Stockholm. It is the first in a series of works aiming to extend the sound quality of certain live-instruments. This piece focuses on the cello and manipulating the instrument in different ways - from a low degree (transposition) to an extremely high degree (a combination of layerings of loops and permutations through the use of a Buchla synthesizer). These sounds are then juxtaposed with some pieces of the original sound material in order to give depth to the perception of the instrument.

Transits élémentaires

Description: Recording of Francis Dhomont's "Transits élémentaires" ("Elementary Transits"). The piece is a question of a crossing that could be compared - very modestly - to that of Dante's Virgil. From fire through air, from central magma to the high layers of the atmosphere, the traveler crosses through then Alice's looking glass. The perception then becomes mental. At the formal level, the piece has five concave movements, all of unequal duration articulated by a constantly varied pattern, a sort of hinge. The piece was realized in Dhomont's personal studio as well of the GMEM (Centre National de Création Musicale) in Marseille for the synthesizer sound materials.
