11 september

Description: Recording of Carl Bergstrøm-Nielsen's "11 september." The text is from a document called "What is MIR?" which was sent out illegally in Chile in 1974 and from the appeal of MIR two years after the taking over by the junta, on September 11, 1975. A left-wing party, MIR stayed in Chile in order to contribute as efficiently as possible to the building of the opposition. Other sound material also includes sounds from a typewriter and a demonstration at Bastad, Sweden in September 1975 at a tennis match between Sweden and Chile with more than 4,000 participants.

The first section "as a spontaneous statement," deals with the document at its direct background: the silence is broken, in spite of the danger connected with the writing, manifolding papers that criticize the politics and methods of the junta and discuss the strategy of the opposition. The second section deals with the document as a medium of discussion. At the end of this section, the "media-environment," "almost as a magazine on foreign affairs," is broken by shouts from the demonstration at the Bastad which were heard directly in Chilean TV. The third section is about the appeal of MIR as a direct request to the audience: to isolate the junta through a boycott of Chilean products and through demanding from national politicians to break the silence which has long been maintained, among other places in the United Nations of which Chile is still a member. Inspiration for the piece came from the composer's participation in the activities of the …

Alias

Description: Recording of Ake Parmerud's Alias. Alias is inspired by the thoughts on the relationship between the composer, Gesualdo da Venoza, and his art. composed of two opposing movements, the first of which is based upon a fragment of a love-song by John Dowland (contemporary to Gesualdo) has been deconstructed, processed and reprocessed into a set of variations output in a linear fashion. The traditional lute-part has been strongly stylized into a chord comprised of the note A-1 and the first 16 harmonics on top. The function of the plucked string sound is however essentially the same as the traditional lute-part. The second movement is an attempt to sketch a slightly surrealistic picture, This is done using quotations from some of Gesualdo's late motets and occasionally blending with them a Dowland lovesong.
