Cascando -- An Electronic Musicalization of the Radio Play by Samuel Beckett

Description: Recording of Charles Dodge's Cascando -- An Electronic Musicalization of the Radio Play by Samuel Beckett. The original play by Beckett concerns the attempts of the "Voice" to tell a story about a man named Woburn that will satisfy the "Opener," which would allow the "Voice" to remain silent from then on forever. When the "Voice" falters or the "Opener" grows tied of hearing him, music is heard. In Dodge's version the "Opener" is played by Sam Tsoutsouvas and the "Voice" is a computer-synthesized voice based on a reading by Steven Gilborn. The music was realized using the synthetic voice as a model for its pitch and noise events.

Carousel

Description: Recording of Reed Holmes's Carousel for choir and tape. The two movements represent a different aspect in the cycle of life: movement 1 "The Whispering Wind" is from the point of view of the Elder, introspective and thoughtful, and movement 2 "Carousel" is from the point of view of the Younger, rhythmic, aggressive, spontaneous, and freely melodic. The choir adds heterophonic elaborations of the pattern to the second movement.

Adagio

Description: Recording of Raoul de Smet's Adagio. For this work the composer had proposed harmony and relaxation "before anything else.” From there, a slow and steady tempo and very simple form. The sound material is provided by twelve ordinary sound generators. The work begins with a chord in the treble, slowly emerging from the silence or void sound and sustained by a regular pulsation in the bass, the result of differential sounds. Then several new sounds are added while others change timbre, octave, or dynamics causing different sounds of other types. During a slow rise in crescendo, short glissandi roam and decorate the sound space until the climax is reached. A sound column, containing twelve frequencies, comes to rest for about a minute, allowing the ear to move in the audience and thus capture the sound shimmer. This passage is the opposite of the sound of nothingness and could thus appear as a sound universe where one could also lose the notion of time. A brutal blow breaks this sound column like a spring too long stretched. This universe collapses slowly to retreat into the depths of the sound nothingness from which it came. The work was realized on an analogue support at the IPEM in Ghent in 1975.
