An even game

Description: Recording of Jarmo Sermilä's An even game. Most people consider sports to be the antithesis of art. Sermilä argues that this is not always the case since the world of sports offers many pairs of opposites which appear in all areas of life, including art: for example, team-work vs. individualism, violence vs. sportsmanship, spontaneity vs. organization, etc. "An Even Game" is an imaginary team sport in which these characteristics are brought out - reduced, however, to musical terms. Two teams clash to the frantic reaction of the fans. Since this is an international match, national anthems are also included. In keeping with the artificial democracy of today's world, the match ends in a draw - an even game - and this may explain the program's tedious repetition of itself. Sermilä uses men's choruses for the two teams, a women's chorus for rhythmical cheering, percussion instruments and general acoustic material from ice hockey and tennis matches. Two Finnish provincial anthems have been used in place of national anthems.

Eso silencios

Description: Recording of Coriún Aharonián's "Esos silencios" ("Those silences"). "Esos silencios" are the silences of our daily vital experience of the seventies in almost all Latin America. "We do not desire them, but they surround us always, until we finally succeed in breaking them," Aharonián wrote. It exclusively uses materials of microphonic origin. Some of the sounds have been made with instruments constructed in Guatemala by Joaqu’n Orellana. The decision to bring to life the piece at that historic moment was convergent with the emotional experience that the pricking edges of the delicate drawings by the Argentinian-Uruguayan Mar’a Carmen Portela and the gagged yell of the dramatic paintings by the Uruguayan Hilda Lopez. In Esos silencios there is a will to establish large, apparently static, areas, with latent tensions, in a structure of full hard edges, almost without the concession of transitions.The piece was originally composed in 1978 and was revised in 1981. It was realized in Elac, the studio of Montevideo. The materials of departure have been produced by the author

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.

Contratempo senza Tempo

Description: Recording of Juan Amenábar's Contratempo senza Tempo. This piece is a sequential structure, not linked to any argument, idea or literary theme, in which the successive appearance of different elements operates as the development of the sound material. This sound comes from the combination of alternating sounds produced by generating electronic and or mechanical phones until certain levels for each sequence are reached, presenting one of the basic concepts of composition upon which the work is based.
