Senza Voci 2

Description: Recording of Guido Baggiani's Senza Voci 2. This work is a piece in three parts. From a base material consisting of four sine waves, three groups of sine waves were derived. The frequency spectrum results from a process of amplitude modulation. There are two different levels of the same process. First level: frequencies belonging to the same group modulate each other. Such reports generate, for each group, four different "Group States". Second level: frequencies belonging to one group modulate another group. This is how the four groups relate to each other.

Le complexe du simple

Description: Recording of Roland Cahen's Le complexe du simple. This piece is a study, which puts in prospect elementary and complex states in the music and the sound construction. This opposition is taken both vertically and horizontally. These two states are complementary and dialectic in music. Simple very few elements are a rest and complex ones taken as a magnifying process. It is also a piece about the composer's personal nostalgia: a sewing machine, which their grandparents travelled around with. As this forgotten mechanic abandoned in an attic, the composer's editing cisors, other instrument made for confection were mostly left in a draw.

Des Etres

Description: Recording of Gabriel Brnčić's Des Etres. This work is dedicated to the memory of Oscar Masotta, a specialist in psychoanalysis and semiology. This is music that recalls the atmosphere of the first montages of the imaginary theater that Oscar Masotta created in the 60s in Buenos Aires and to which I collaborated by producing infinite quantities of sound. Now, a viol and a computer, in eight-voice polyphony, constitute this absence of being, constantly speaking of its presence.

Into the blue

Description: Recording of Joseph Hyde's Into the blue. This work begins with an opening soundscape made up entirely of untreated natural sounds. The rest of the work is a deconstruction of this scene, exploring the intimate relationship between the aural sense and the subconscious, in particular the relationship between sound and time. These works are purposely limited to the aural domain, to allow the listener to close their eyes, shut off the outside world, and concentrate instead on what is going on inside. SoundHack and AudioSculpt processed the sounds, and OSC DeckII for mixing.

Shattered

Description: Recording of John Rimmer's Shattered. This work begins with a string bow breaking, this sound gradually expands and shatters through sounds of which even the smallest bears a striking resemblance to the original sound from which they are extracted. A new world of sound, spectacular, evolves with sonorities assimilable to sonorities derived from harmonics on the violin and in contrast with large shapes laden with splinters of the bow. The work ends with the reappearance of the original recording as if the violinist was trying to reappear on the stage despite his broken bow.

Forma del respiro

Description: Recording of Michelangelo Lupone's Forma del respiro. The composer transformed the sound of the word "respiro" (breath) until the metamorphosis of the sound itself which refers to the action to blow. Starting from the word and treating rhythm and timbre as elements of musical variation allowed the composer to highlight the complexity of the components of sound, the smallest (grains). The possibility of reaching the depth of the cells (until one can no longer distinguish them from a cell of noise), suggested to the composer the structure and the processes of sound synthesis. The realization used the Fly 30 sound synthesis and processing system.

Cell secusion

Description: Recording of Stephen Brandon's Cell secusion. This work uses computer-modified cellular sound. The frequent extension of a natural sound reveals an inner world of activity. Computer manipulations of these sounds allow composers to take pieces that would otherwise disappear in a fraction of a second, mix them and play them against each other against the sounds from which they originate. The cellular technique was performed on a NeXT computer system, using sound, various vocoder phase sets and a number of common software applications for manipulation of synthesis data.

Whispering Island

Description: Recording of John Elmsly's Whispering Island. For computer generated sounds. There are colorful legends about the feuding Maori whose fighting formed the volcanic island of Rangitoto; these sound-carvings from Rangitoto are not programmatic, though the stories are part of the spirit of the place, as are the more physical aspects of sight and soundscape. The raw sound material was recorded on the island (a rock pool at the water's edge), and is heard near the end of the work. Utilization the POD system and real-time granulation of sampled sound.

3 pièces pour double basse et bande

Description: Recording of Orlando Jacinto Garcia's 3 pièces pour double basse et bande. Was written for bassist Robert Black and completed in the summer of 1990. The tape part was made using the bass player's recordings of brief musical pieces (i.e. tremolos, harmonics...) which were then digitized by the composer, sometimes transforming and mixing the material in layers of sound. The second of the three pieces is characteristic of a genre of glissandos, register changes, and also long holds both on tape and for the live double bass part. Great care as to the correctness of tone and the control of timbre is necessary on the part of the double bass player.

Périoda Espacial

Description: Recording of Roberto Valera's Périoda Espacial. Périoda Espacial (Spatial Period) is a continuous timbre space where 4 voices play similar musical material, but with different tempi. The tempo, in permanent development, with different timbres, successions, changes and the superimposition of voices, creates a musical fresco, a complex matter of a polyphonic structure in motion. All sounds in the room are fully synthetic (FM) and were made with a Yamaha DXI II FD synthesizer. Périoda Espacial is a work of meditative genre, with a continuous conception of time and a constant counterpoint of timbre atmosphere.

Receiver

Description: Recording of Jonas Soderberg's Receiver. For voice and electronics. Towards the end of the century, the multitude of messages meeting over the airwaves and networks reached such a volume that transmitters as well as receivers lost their raison d'être.

5 microinfinitos

Description: Recording of Sergio Rojas de Carvalmo's 5 microinfinitos. A constellation of 27 micro-songs exploring new flirtations between poetry and music. Built-in, forgotten electro-acoustic design; music free of any adjective, without any fear or melodies or even rhythmic pulsations where the eroticism of the body is expressed. Poetic language at the limits of conciseness, flirting with prose, far from any domestication of literary genres. Dialogues of contrasting cultural spaces, dialogues of dimensions and above all dialogues where reason and concepts are silent and where everything is mystery.

Piano, ma non tanto

Description: Recording of Gustavo Matamoros' Piano, ma non tanto. The connection between the eye and the brain can be physically interrupted by the eyelids, which, independently of their protective function, stop the flow of external visual. It is interesting to see that many people close their eyes in order to open their ears. This work is designed to give the performer an intuitive ON/OFF button - sensitive to changes in amplitude - which controls the stream of information emanating from a tape. The performer improvises sound materials in response to this information and opens and closes the electronic window while playing or not.
