Presque rien no.2

Description: Recording of Luc Ferrari's Presque rien no. 2. One of the main features of Presque Rien No. 2 is narration, not in the sense of telling a story, but rather to define the time, indicating that something is happening in one place. Contrary to the soundscapes where the place is perceptible, the elements that it uses and designates as the sound of everyday life incite, by the concept of a minimal story and not an event history, to a journey in time; it is the randomness of everyday sounds consisting of a substance and belonging to everyday actions that builds time. The intention to tell is there, but remains unclear.

Mordre La Terre Vivante

Description: Recording of Nicole Lachartre's Mordre La Terre Vivante. In the first part, a large number of quasi-linear paths intertwine to create a semi-fluid mass that is sometimes even almost amorphous. This is followed by a section worked into a precisely sculpted dynamic profile and contrasting rhythmic formulas are introduced at times by a wide variety of instruments including various percussions over which an almost classical solo voice hovers. Then the strict rhythmic formulas are temporarily destroyed by aggressive material introduced in overprinting whose pitches and durations have been determined stochastically.

It Always Takes a Short Time

Description: Recording of Peter Beyls's It Always Takes a Short Time. The work combines tape music and words spoken live with an electronic transformation of the vocal material. The electronic sound material as well as the original sounds given have been used and structured on four tracks. The vocal material, said by Herman Sabbe, consists of a textual structure by Belgian artist Yves Desmet. This material has been intensively manipulated, with special attention to the purely sonic aspects of language. The resulting sounds are semantically meaningless although a musical compilation of text content can be detected at times. In the first part, colorful noises and textures of gradually increasing complexity were used. The central part is built on the exploitation of sounds similar to those of percussion and almost at the end of the work a continuum with slight fluctuations in the colors and the dynamics increase.

Tu viens chéri(e)

Description: Recording of Bernard Heidsieck's Tu viens chéri(e). The composer recorded 5 men and 5 women saying the sentence "Tu viens, chéri(e)" 150 times in a row and then combined this recording with mixed tape. The tape is stereo, with the women at the beginning on one track and the men on another, until all voices are together on both tracks. The entire piece represents a verbal orgasm with an unexpected phenomenon of more panic in each voice than of tenderness.

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 text is taken in small excerpts from the document in Spanish, English, Swedish, Danish, French, Dutch, and Icelandic. The piece consists of three sections overlapping each other gradually, which shows the relationship between the spoken words and the immediate danger connected with that text. 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 …

Liège à Paris

Description: Recording of Henri Pousseur's Liège à Paris for tape. The preposition "à" refers to several possible verbs: first, Liège thinks of Paris, and his first way of expressing it is to go there in a fictitious way, to play to visit it, to be there. So one can perceive that this is not just an illusion, that Liege (just like Geneva or Montreal) is in Paris, in every sense of the word, including that of 'to belong'. All these cities are part of a vast linguistic and cultural fabric, of which Paris is undoubtedly the heart. Finally, he dreams of a Paris really deserving its title of "City-light", to which Liège would strive to answer (even if its blast furnaces are extinguished one after the other) by that of "Cité ardente". Apart from the spontaneous, daily, improvised words gleaned from here and there by more or less indiscreet tape recorders, apart from four groups of brief quotations from Arcane 17 by André Breton, and apart from a promulgation of a rather official, easy to identify (and that our author has already incorporated into one of his prose), the texts used are all extracts of works by Michel Butor ("I hate Paris", main text, included in "Where" and "The island at the end of the world", in "Repertoire III"). Voice of Frédéric Bosseur, Jean-Yves Bosseur, Jean Drèze, René Hainaux, Isabelle Pousseur, a group of pupils of declamation classes of the Conservatoire de Liège, a group of collaborators of the Center for Musical Research of Wallonia and the children of the collaborators.
