Caruso, rompiendo las aranas

Description: Recording of Gabriel Jorge Cerini's Caruso, rompiendo las aranas.

The intersection between these two different "feelings" were the core of the composer's composition. The sound were produced by a synthesizer Kawai k1 and programed in a hardware sequencer Kawai Q 80.

7 excerpts from "visual haïku"

Description: Recording of Warren Burt's 7 excerpts from "visual haïku". "Visual Haiku" was a set of 16 computer pieces made for Robert Randall's "Visual Haiku" project in 1994. All the music was made on various computer systems using software such as Band-in-a-Box, Sound Globs, M, Cool Edit and so on. Each of the "Visual Haiku" used algorithmic processes to assemble music which loudly and proudly proclaimed bad taste and slavish obeisance to commercial musical models, in keeping with the neo-Warholian aesthetic of Randall's work. "Visual Haiku" appear on the 2 CD set "Randelli's Selection" - on Scarlet Aardvark CD No. 47 A and B, available from www.warrenburt.com.

Bone

Description: Recording of Gerald Siclovan's Bone. Text: "Cacophany" by Marc Christensen, read by the author and Mary M. Miller. Language cut to the bone: the piece begins with an isolated phoneme compressed and looped into a synthesizer-like texture, which gradually expands until it is transformed into the first word of the text. All sounds up to the end of the second stanza are manipulations of the human voice. Language conflated with non-language: the human voice as both means of communication and as instrument of incoherence. Language abandoned and superseded by the din of the world: voices embedded in desultory noise, failing to convey meaning; voices of birds and dogs which, though unpenetrated by human comprehension, at least remain recognizably articulated; voices of insects, which are not even articulated (at least to human perception); and voices of machines, inhabitants of a menacing wonderland, matter devoid of spirt. Among the noises heard in this piece: motorcycles, automobiles, ice cream trucks, the air brake of a school bus, a gasoline-powered generator; an especially obnoxious car alarm; radio junk emanating from automobiles and homes; firecrackers and fireworks; birds, dogs, crickets and cicadas; and of course the omnipresent hiss and rumble of the dystopic industrial world, all recorded out of a window in suburban Detroit.

Rituellipses

Description: Recording of Stephan Dunkelman's Rituellipses. Rituellipses is music of "sounds in movement," made by and for dance. The sonic objects, made from fragments of concrete or instrumental musical patterns, are pulled as if by centrifugal force. They follow each other in continuous rotational movements that only silence can suspend. These studies of trajectory combinations are developed in short movements that are alternately lively, calm, restrained or uninhibited. Equilibrium had been achieved when the whole appeared to be multipliable-complete yet expandable.

Buccharelli's Lamento

Description: Recording of Jonas Broberg's Buccharelli's Lamento. The piece was composed in December '92 and January '93 at E.M.S. in Stockholm. The sound material was generated on a Serge Modular analogue synthesizer. The work is based upon the idea of stopping for a moment in the bustle of everyday life, taking a break to find space for contemplation. Soon, however, distractions and shifting impressions from the opening of the composition reappear. Although the material was generated electronically, the spirit of the piece is closer to Musique Concréte. "Buccharelli's Lamento" was premiered at a concert of Swedish Electroacoustic music at Florida International University in February 1993.

Fiestudy

Description: Recording of Simon Hall's Fiestudy. Fiestudy was composed for two reasons - one practical, one musical. In 1992, the composer bought a 12-year-old Ford Fiesta. The car itself was cheap, but over the course of the next 18 months, it cost the composer thousands of pounds in repairs and towing bills. Simon Hall then became determined to reap some reward for the large, apparently worthless financial investment, and the opportunity of utilizing some of the strange noises this condemned vehicle made seemed to be a good one. A recording session under the bonnet and a whole host of aural possibilities suddenly became apparent. The composer's second reason for the composition of this piece was my intention of putting together a musical argument between two contrasting types of material: persistent, driving rhythmic ideas; and material that existed for its texture - its sonic content. There is, inevitably, a degree of overlap between these two types of material, classification of materials as "rhythm based" or "texture based" often being deliberately ambiguous - the textures grow from the rhythms and vice-versa.

Iops 3

Description: Recording of Anders Blomqvist's Iops 3. The composer has written a description of the story of the piece as follows: The intergalax IOPS3 spacecraft is no larger than a seed, and yet is equipped with an array of media detectors, collected information storage, communications equipment and personnel. The main character of the story makes a navigation error, and is sucked into the large ventilation system of the Munich brewery. (GMS in Stockholm). He sends distress signals to the main ship, but receives back, with great disappointment, the hard-to-decipher word "continue". The engines start up with a bang and the journey that will follow will introduce our visitors to a new "mikrosmos" of the earth: EMS in Sweden.

Ear-Music

Description: Recording of László Dubrovay's Ear-Music. The piece was written for the chamber ensemble EAR. One of the 3 digital synthesizers uses its own sounds, the other 2 being modulated by an analog synthesizer. The trumpet sounds are modified in the same way using a microphone. It is thus possible to carry out very interesting transformations on the stamps. These new sounds and sound processors build the musical language. The melody, consisting of oscillating sounds after various transformations, develops and achieves perfect clarity and harmony with the surrounding elements at the end of the piece.

Pierre (stones)

Description: Recording of Janos Decsenyl's Pierre (stones). Composed of eight parts. The layers, thickening and thinning by unit, consist of sounds either discrete/isolated one by one.

The sound material is composed of the concrete sounds of stones, their modulations and synthetic sounds. The variations are as follows: volcano, lava, rocks, rocks, small and large stalactites, precious stones, pebbles, sand.

Concertino for piano and tape

Description: Recording of László Dubrovay's Concertino for piano and tape. The work has a special tuning system (36V2; 1/6 tone). In this version, the piano uses three differently tuned strings for one note. The digital orchestration is produced by a Yamaha DX II FD synthesizer under the control of a Macintosh computer. The piece consists of three movements, like a traditional concerto. All chords are precisely determined. The novelty in this piece is the particular harmony and the principle of the melody which make it possible to sing a new melody, associating the accomplishment of the traditional concerti - brilliance and virtuosity - with a system of microtonal tuning and with a "rock music" stamp. From this combination emerges a new intonation.

Stillness and rise (Quiétude et mouvements)

Description: Recording of Katharina Poc's Stillness and rise (Quiétude et mouvements). This work is divided into 5 pieces: 1. Electronic Introduction. Its characteristics lie in the pulsations of triplets. 2. Derived from live sound frequencies with occasional bells. In addition, clarinet sounds characterized by different speeds and lengths occur repeatedly. 3. The intervals of the live part widen and the electronic background sound becomes denser and denser. This piece leads to the 4th, more hectic, where the electronic band dominates. The 5th track resumes the first appearance of the live sound, the sound of the frame of the 2nd part and the resumption of the introduction is done little by little.

Shapes (Formes)

Description: Recording of Miklós Sugár's Shapes (Formes). Originally for cello solo. But in this aspect, "Formes" was never played again, because the composer and musician realized that the original instrument could be electronically modulated. Since then it has been played that way. In this work, the electronic modulations of the timbre and the different superpositions of the piece project into each other. The individual repetitions are also electronically generated. "Forms" is made up of four movements and the repetitions always appear in different ways.
