Transits élémentaires

Description: Recording of Francis Dhomont's "Transits élémentaires" ("Elementary Transits"). The piece is a question of a crossing that could be compared - very modestly - to that of Dante's Virgil. From fire through air, from central magma to the high layers of the atmosphere, the traveler crosses through then Alice's looking glass. The perception then becomes mental. At the formal level, the piece has five concave movements, all of unequal duration articulated by a constantly varied pattern, a sort of hinge. The piece was realized in Dhomont's personal studio as well of the GMEM (Centre National de Création Musicale) in Marseille for the synthesizer sound materials.
Date: 1982/1983
Duration: 16 minutes 32 seconds

Description: Recording of Jonty Harrison's Eq for live saxophone and tape. It is the third in a series of works that features saxophones. This piece like the others, is also concerned with 'cu' (here made manifest by the interaction of live saxophone and recorded sounds on tape), 'Q' (a filter is used to sweet the producing melodic material out of static harmony) and spatial articulation. 'EQ' is studio slang for 'equalization - a more sophisticated version of the treble and bass controls on a domestic hi-fi system and a fundamental device for sound modification in the studio. EQ was commissioned by John Harle with funds made available by the arts Council of Great Britain. It received it's first performance in the Purcell Room, London in November 1980. The tape was produced in the Electronic Music Studios of the University of New York and the City University, London.

Walking Bells

Description: Recording of David Porter's Walking Bells for tape. The piece is a tour through an environmental/concrete landscape. It is another variation on the "cumulative form." This is the second in a series of four tape pieces. As with all these pieces, this piece comments on political and compositional methods and devices. In this instance, the piece makes reference to another composer whose style is borrowed. Other than that, it is pure experience. This piece should be listened to with speakers placed well apart and volume up the the highest comfortable level at the last two minutes of the piece.
