Cascando -- An Electronic Musicalization of the Radio Play by Samuel Beckett

Description: Recording of Charles Dodge's Cascando -- An Electronic Musicalization of the Radio Play by Samuel Beckett. The original play by Beckett concerns the attempts of the "Voice" to tell a story about a man named Woburn that will satisfy the "Opener," which would allow the "Voice" to remain silent from then on forever. When the "Voice" falters or the "Opener" grows tied of hearing him, music is heard. In Dodge's version the "Opener" is played by Sam Tsoutsouvas and the "Voice" is a computer-synthesized voice based on a reading by Steven Gilborn. The music was realized using the synthetic voice as a model for its pitch and noise events.

Adagio

Description: Recording of Raoul de Smet's Adagio. For this work the composer had proposed harmony and relaxation "before anything else.” From there, a slow and steady tempo and very simple form. The sound material is provided by twelve ordinary sound generators. The work begins with a chord in the treble, slowly emerging from the silence or void sound and sustained by a regular pulsation in the bass, the result of differential sounds. Then several new sounds are added while others change timbre, octave, or dynamics causing different sounds of other types. During a slow rise in crescendo, short glissandi roam and decorate the sound space until the climax is reached. A sound column, containing twelve frequencies, comes to rest for about a minute, allowing the ear to move in the audience and thus capture the sound shimmer. This passage is the opposite of the sound of nothingness and could thus appear as a sound universe where one could also lose the notion of time. A brutal blow breaks this sound column like a spring too long stretched. This universe collapses slowly to retreat into the depths of the sound nothingness from which it came. The work was realized on an analogue support at the IPEM in Ghent in 1975.

Ambience

Description: Recording of Richard Orton's Ambience. Ambience for solo bass trombone and tape was written for the American Trombonist James Fulkerson and first performed by him in the Wigmore Hall, London, on 17 May 1975. He has since included the work in many recitals during his tours in Scandinavia, Canada and the USA. The title "Ambience" here refers to the imaginative sonic environment surrounding the sounds of the trombone, including the most "artificial," synthesized sounds, instrumental ensembles which incorporate the trombone, and environmental recordings including public sounds we will recognize and share. Within this sonic environment the trombone at times asserts itself, at times merges most imperceptibly, and eventually complements it and achieves a harmonic and dynamic balance.

Anna

Description: Recording of John Edward Cousins's Anna. This piece is based on recordings made in 1974 at the ISME Research Seminar which took place at the Department of Music of the University of Canterbury. The subject of the seminar was Music and the Preschool-aged Child. Among the invited speakers were two specialists in the field of Musical Therapeutics. As an example of the power of musical sounds on an extremely retarded child, their article defends all therapeutic positive aspects inherent in musical nature. The composer tried to capture, by means of sound, the feeling of both joy and pain that the experience of music gives to a person, disabled or not.

Chile Fertil Provincia...

Description: Recording of Gabriel Berncic's "Chile Fertil Provincia..." Electronic and instrumental sounds, recorded and processed onto four tracks, make up an autonomous flow. To this are added percussion, viola, double bass, tumbadoras and voices, these instruments-persons bringing new visions to the ensemble through the free creation of sequences and/or parallel discourses. "Chile fertil provincia" is the opening line in Alonso de Ercilla y Zœ–iga's La Araucana, the long epic poem which was the first to tell of the conquest of this remote West Indies country in Spanish American literature. It is an allegory about the motherland in ancient and recent times: Latin America told through scenes whose chronology does not obey any absolute historical time. Beginning with a futuristic ancestor and passing through different vassalages, a synthesis forms which evokes the oldest of traditions and aspires to be a binding hymn of the peoples. The titles of this staging music are, in order of performance, as follows: The Woods of Our Ancestors and of Those Yet to Come, The Conqueror's Cross of the South, The Piano of the Inquisition, La Moneda del Valle de Yuro, Jail and Disappearance, The Broad Boulevards Will Open Up. This work, revised several times and finally presented publicly in Barcelona and London, found its final form in 1983. The piece won first prize in the 1984 edition of the Group de Musique electroacoustic contest of Bourges.

The work was awarded First Prize at the 1979 International Electroacoustic Music Awards, Bourges, France.
