Skelelemedania

Description: Recording of Hal Freedman's Skelelemedania. This piece falls into three sections; the first and third combine live and tape sounds, and the second is for tape alone. The piece as a whole represents an expansion of the middle tape section. The more purely electronic layers were composed to complement or contrast with the vocal elements. The first and third sections make use of tape echo and delay systems. The timing of the repetitions allow the delay to be heard not as feedback but as a continuous evolution of texture and harmonic, melodic, and contrapuntal interplay.

In Celebration

Description: Recording of Charles Dodge's In Celebration. "In Celebration" was composed during the first part of 1975. The composition tends to capture the spirit and structure of Mark Strand's poem and to give it a coherent sense musically. The poem has a two-part structure separated by the reappearance of the verse "You sit in a chair.” The two parts of the poem can be distinguished from each other by the different degrees of passivity attributed to the "You,” the person to whom the poem is addressed.

Haauqui

Description: Recording of Graciela Paraskevaídis's Haauqui (pronounced Wauki or Ouaouki) for two-track tape. The title is a Qechua word referring to a small statue carried by the Incas that resembles their own image, a meaning extended to brotherhood, community, and friendship. The sound events, created from both microphonic and electronic sources, aim at a non-discursive, non-anecdotic function based on a self-imposed simplicity and on the presence of structural silence. It was realized at Elac, pequeno estudio de Montevideo, in 1975.

Syntagmes

Description: Recording of Francis Dhomont's Syntagmes. This work obeys a double concern: formal rigor and vagrancy of the imagination. Seemingly contradictory proceedings, they are inspired by linguistic mechanisms which - within the limits of a code - allow innumerable discoveries.

Construction

Description: Recording of Curtis Roads's Construction. This piece consists of continuous sound spectra. It was composed intuitively by ear. Its process of forming is characterized by an interplay among sections of historical development (continuous transformation), sequences of event (discrete spectral "harmonies"), and disjoint non-sequiturs (contrasting modes of musical behavior). "Construction" is a model, an alternative vision to the dominant mode of structuring. The technical devices used to make the work were: Moog III Synthesizer, Bode Ring Modulator, Bode Frequency Shifter, Ampex 4/2 Mixer, JBL Monitors, Quad/Eight Mixing Console, ITI Parametric Equalizer, Pultec Equalizer, Acoustic Echo Chamber, Altec Monitors.

Relazioni-trasformazioni

Description: Recording of Albert Mayr's Relazioni-transformazioni. “Relationships-Transformations” is part of a series of works that are based on the TIME-ASPECTS text and thus start from the same basic hypothesis: highlighting the relationships that come into being between various sound events - or even visual, theatrical – in function of relationships between their organizations in time and subjective transformations - of such events that occur during the operation. This hypothesis is carried on with the use of a very small material, both for recorded and instrumental parts, without any virtuosity, even to avoid masking, with affirmative artisans, the state of erosion of making music today.

Ta Foneenta

Description: Recording of Iván Patachich's Ta Foneenta. The base of the work forms a mathematical series. The sound material of the work consists of vowels, synthetic sounds, and Morgenstern's poem "The Great Lalula." The construction of the work is two-channel and panoramic and constructed spatial movement are also often used. Sound units present in the molded parts are microstructures. The work has a so-called bridge shape, so the eleventh molding is a variation and mirror image of the first part, the tenth molding varies the second, and so forth. The sixth molding is the highlight of the work.

Atelje II (Atelier II)

Description: Recording of Lojze Lebič's Atelje II (Atelier II) for tape. The piece was composed in collaboration with Paul Pignon in the Radio Belgrade Electronic Studio in September 1975. It is made up of five sections, in which certain electroacoustic "instrumental" ideas are transformed through characteristic compositional procedures. The title has a twofold meaning: on one hand, it reveals the aims of the composer's research, considering that this was Lebič's first encounter with the electronic medium, and on the other, his expectations that the composition would be performed in the Concert Atelier cycle of the Society of Slovene composers. Atelier II was later expanded into Atelier III for magnetic tape and live violoncello performance.

Polyfonium

Description: Recording of Lucien Goethals's Polyfonium. This is a mobile electroacoustic composition consisting of 4 independent layers that must be superimposed ad libitum during the listening even if the piece is in a concert hall. By varying the modes of superposition, one obtains a different version each time without the general character of the piece changing. It is also possible to make reduced versions, that is to say, by superimposing two or three layers only. Such achievements will then give less complex versions, but quite complete from the musical point of view because each structural layer is autonomous. The basic material consists of concrete sounds and electronic sounds. Complex figures were made using an electronic programmer. The piece is dedicated to Nicole Lachartre.

Ambience

Description: Recording of Richard Orton's Ambience. Ambience for solo bass trombone and tape was written for the American Trombonist James Fulkerson and first performed by him in the Wigmore Hall, London, on 17 May 1975. He has since included the work in many recitals during his tours in Scandinavia, Canada and the USA. The title "Ambience" here refers to the imaginative sonic environment surrounding the sounds of the trombone, including the most "artificial," synthesized sounds, instrumental ensembles which incorporate the trombone, and environmental recordings including public sounds we will recognize and share. Within this sonic environment the trombone at times asserts itself, at times merges most imperceptibly, and eventually complements it and achieves a harmonic and dynamic balance.
