Adagio

Description: Recording of Raoul de Smet's Adagio. For this work the composer had proposed harmony and relaxation "before anything else.” From there, a slow and steady tempo and very simple form. The sound material is provided by twelve ordinary sound generators. The work begins with a chord in the treble, slowly emerging from the silence or void sound and sustained by a regular pulsation in the bass, the result of differential sounds. Then several new sounds are added while others change timbre, octave, or dynamics causing different sounds of other types. During a slow rise in crescendo, short glissandi roam and decorate the sound space until the climax is reached. A sound column, containing twelve frequencies, comes to rest for about a minute, allowing the ear to move in the audience and thus capture the sound shimmer. This passage is the opposite of the sound of nothingness and could thus appear as a sound universe where one could also lose the notion of time. A brutal blow breaks this sound column like a spring too long stretched. This universe collapses slowly to retreat into the depths of the sound nothingness from which it came. The work was realized on an analogue support at the IPEM in Ghent in 1975.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
