Description: Recording of Nicole Lachartre's Mordre la terre vivante. This work gives an example of the possibilities of compositional logic offered to composers working at the Belgrade studio. In the first part, a large number of quasi-linear pathways intertwine to create a semi-fluid mass, almost even amorphous at times. It is followed by a section worked in dynamic profile sculpted with precision and contrasts of rhythmic formulas are introduced sometimes by a large variety of instruments including various percussion instruments over which hovers an almost classic “solo” voice. Then the strict rhythmic formulas are temporarily destroyed by an aggressive material introduced in printing whose heights and durations were stochastically determined.
