1...789

Description: Haris XANTHOUDAKIS: 1 ... 789 It is the setting to music (of the "setting in rhythm", more precisely) of two Greek texts talking about the French revolution and illustrating two opposite aspects of its impact in Greece, still occupied by the Turks, of the end of the seventeenth century: a "Patriarchal letter" (sort of circular of the Patriarch of Constantinople, to read in the Orthodox churches), condemning the French who "practiced the fraticide, killed their king and lost their faith in God" (in this order) and, on the other hand, a poem by Antonios Martelaos (1754-1818), congratulating the French for having shed blood for the freedom of the people. The first text is played at the beginning and end of the song (phonetically reversed and in a normal voice, respectively). The other forms slowly, parallel to a rhythmic accompaniment, of "disco" nature. This double reconstitution will be done in steps of proportion 1: 2: 3: ...: 7: 8: 9. A portion of this proportion, namely 1: 7: 8: 9, serves to generate an interval pattern (semitone, fifth, sixth minor, sixth major) that appears in both its sequential and simultaneous forms. Repetitive music, "disco" music, serial music, for a piece that wants to celebrate a bicentennial, its contradictory way, while keeping its distance.

4 Piezas Instrumentales

Description: For being the round world, who walks away in the East looking for new landscapes, after many trips and adventures he will return to the starting point from the West ... perhaps without wanting to or looking for it. By listening to these 4 instrumental pieces, you will think that they consist of an interpretation made for traditional music instruments. However, for me, the composer is nothing but a new experience in the field of technological music. In this case the experimentation consists of a program that improvises, plays, exchanges in many different ways an initial succession of tones giving rise to very different sound tissues. It is an experiment of the same complexity and quality as others that I have used in the past and that have given me totally different sound results. In this case the experimentation uses shades of defined and adjustable height, creating clear intervalic, acordic, polyphonic organizations, etc. In this domain, a similarity with instrumental music is inevitably obtained. I did not want to avoid this reality using bands of noise or continuous changes of harmonicity, but, on the contrary, I highlight the winter using homogeneous sounds that parody some known acoustic instrument. The four instruments chosen are: Trumpet, Marimba, Voice and Guitar. These instruments are presets of the Yamaha DX7II with all its advantages and disadvantages. I chose a solo arrangement for each extremely sharp instrument in terms of interval discourse and thus obtain a better appreciation of the different games, canons, permutations, dynamic levels, ornamentations, etc., which developed the program. Each in semitones. The scores corresponding to the pieces of Trumpet, Marimba and Guitar are recorded on diskettes, constituting "tapeless music", bone music that can be played directly by operating the computer to the digital synthesizer. The vocal piece has been made in …
