Chicarra's

Description: "Chicharra's" is an ode to the Spanish landscape and the men populating this landscape. Sounds of nature such as the breath of the wind, the rushing of the rain, the rustling of the sea carry life in themselves. Thus the rustling of "Chicharra's", the cicadas, their singing narrative was recorded as a set of precious voices. These voices were sent electronically to the strings and then turned into new sounds. This process is comparable to that of instrumental music where the violin bow is coated with coniferous resin to awaken sounds. Thus the buzzing of the fly on my microphone has been transformed into a kind of huge chorus of men. With the poet Schierbeek, I exchanged the Spanish landscapes that we saw and listened to. From there, the poems are born. Poems with the subject of the little donkey, famous because irreplaceable, men work the earth, the thirst, the red earth, the dark wine, the family life and the evenings of Spain. It is the beautiful voice of Lino Calle de Segovia that I chose as an interpreter and it is by kissing the glance, in memory, the mountains of Gadarama that I consider "Chicharra's" as a tribute to Spain. Second prize in the category "Experimental Music to Program" at the XIV International Competition of Electroacoustic Music of Bourges / 1986.
