Rapid eye movement

Description: Recording of Roger Doyle's Rapid eye movement. The title refers to the type of sleep called "Rapid Eye Movement" or REM, which is dream sleep. During REM sleep, the muscles of the eyes move as though the dreamer were watching something. Structurally, the work is conceived in the same way as Déjà vu occurs in life. There are 30 or 40 instances of mysterious familiarities of the same sounds placed in totally different contexts. Like the human cell, any extract from the composition will reveal the main elements comprising it - the part reflects the whole.

Sous le regard d'un soleil noir

Description: Recording of Francis Dhomont's "Sous le regard d'un soleil noir" )"Under the Glare of a Black Sun") performed by the speakers Pierre Louet, Marthe Forget, and Arthur Bergeron. This is the original recording of the piece that was created in 1982. The text is primarily by Ronald D. Laing and the piece also features quotes by Plato, Franz Kafka, and K. Georg Buchner. The eight sections of the work were inspired by reading the work of the psychiatrist and psychoanalyst Ronald D Laing. The eight sections of the piece are as follows: 1. Pareil a un voyageur perdu (Like a Traveler Who's Been Lost); 2. Engloutissement (Engulfment); 3. Arrête! Arrête! Elle me tue (Stop it. Stop it. She's Killing Me); 4. Implosion; 5. Le moi divisé (The Divided Self); 6. Citadelle intérieure (Inner Citadel); 7. Pétrification (Petrification); 8. Le message quand vient le soir (The Message at the Coming of Night). The piece focuses on the experience of schizophrenia, something Dhomont calles a "particular form of human tragedy... the dissolution of the being and the exploding of personality, where a universe of implacable confinement is constructed." The "clinical commentaries" of the narrators, as the comments of a therapist/coryphaeus (though not devoid of tenderness), serve as landmarks throughout the work, though they only serve to introduce the distance, using few caesuras that will spare pathos from pathetic, and in regard to ourselves, voyeurism. Dhomont describes the piece as being "the history of a shipwreck: the hallucinated derivation across an obsessional landscape where the note B-natural is the obsessed character, the tonic axis that binds together the eight sections." The veritable ostinato, an "Invention on one note," recalls the idea of Wozzeck by Alban Berg. The original version of "Sous Ie regard d'un soleil noir" was produced in 1979-80 in the studios …

Le grand silence d'un seul oiseau

Description: Recording of Will Eisma's "Le grand silence d'un seul oiseau" ("The great silence of a single bird") for tape. During World War II, a network of 40,000 km of trenches crossed South Flanders and the North of France. Still today, there remains part of these trenches as a long underground tunnel somewhere around Metz and Verdun. The composition represents an imaginary underground journey from Calais to the Swiss border, through the infernal moles, in the gloomy and frightening obscurity of this absurd war. The poem of Ab Van Eyk tells of these horrors: "Someone walks forward, slowly spitting out his lungs, while a bird pass near me, the gas ......... The night shows fiery angels, among the lights of the "no man's land "; until the twilight silence arrives, the great silence of a only bird, just before sunrise raspberry color." The piece was composed and realized in the studio Five Roses in April 1981.

Then, a selection was made and various sequences retained by Souffriau were reworked electro-acoustically. He then manipulated these sequences in order to create the stereophonic version presented here.

Son recif

Description: Recording of Jacqueline Ozanne's "Son recif" for voice and tape. This piece comes from a work on the myth of the sirens and includes texts written on this theme in their original languages. As the singer/speaker repeats the story, it is crossed by the sounds of these languages, by songs that cannot continue, as well as successive states of emotion. The electroacoustic tape plays a constant dramatic role: sometimes worrisome, sometimes reassuring, sometimes enveloping presences, it continually influences the interpreter in their vocal and dramatic production. The performance includes a video projection.

Description: Recording of Alcides Lanza's Sensors IV performed in 1984 by the McGill Concert Choir, conducted by Christopher Reynolds. The tape was realized at the Composer's studio (SHELAN Studio) and McGill University EMS in Montreal, QC, Canada.

Recording of the word "memories" -- Meg Sheppard's voice -- is used in the realization of the piece.
