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.

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.

Perpetusa

Description: Recording of Peter Tod Lewis's Perpetusa. A 4-Channel Tape Presentation in Four Movements. In electronic music, a typical "patch" (system interconnection) will comprise an audio signal and audio/sub-audio, AC/DC controls, where various parameters of the former are modified at specific points in the signal path by the latter. In the present work, these details may be of interest, in that the signal is one of the source materials for an earlier work, Gestes II, while the controls are voltages derived from Gestes II itself. This principal patch for Perpertusa produced a proliferation of sonic materials so baffling I had at first no idea how to proceed, yet so compelling I was forced to the task. Began with small structural units (which abound in this work, where virtually every moment partakes of a structural gesture) and crept towards larger ones. Towards the end of the work, a "new" idea, as of the sound of horns or tubas, is heard. It is none other than the signal, the source (whose torn and bleeding manifestations we have been listening to all along) at last unmodified. This mournful blare (from the fortress itself) signals the conclusion and summing up.

Pisces

Description: Recording of Jukka Ruohomäki's Pisces. The sound texture of this piece is exceptionally dense and compounds over one hour of mixed concrete and electronic sounds into six minutes. Some of the materials were originally made for a radio play in which people go through very painful experiences which finally transform them into fish.

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.

Whispers Out of Time

Description: Recording of James Dashow's Whispers Out of Time. The title of this piece refers to the last line in a poem titled "Portrait in a Convex Mirror" by John Ashbery (1975). The composer used a VCS3, three ReVox tape recorders each with vari-speed gadget, and an AKG reverberation unit in an attempt to express with electronic sounds the moods, feelings, and sensations the four words of the title invoked in him.

Where Sea Meets Sky Part I

Description: Recording of John Rimmer's Where Sea Meets Sky Part I. This piece consists of two parts. Part 1 an electronic piece, Part 2 an instrumental piece which is an outgrowth of the electronic music. The work was inspired by a plane journey from Australia to New Zealand on a particularly beautiful, dead day. The elements of blue void and cloud formations provide the force for the piece which falls into several sections each separated by a length silence. The final section contains a spoken reference to the poem "Those Others" by Ian Wedde, narrated on this tape by the poet. "The sea does not meet the sky. They kiss only in our minds. They are priceless in that space which recedes forever where we make them lovers forever."

Musinelle

Description: Recording of Jozef Rychlik's Musinelle. Material of the piece was extracted from the jazz piece (looped) and processed through the following devices: 8 Octave Filter Bank, Random Voltage Generator, and Pitch-to-Voltage Converter. The new material was completed with the electronic sounds from Synthi AKS. Particular sound and rhythmical structures were edited and sequenced through the preciously composed narration with wide rhythmical and space expression. Editing was made with scissors and special splice tape.

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.

Solipsismo

Description: Recording of Bruno D'Auzon's Solipsismo. This work combines a finished text (in Portuguese) and its relation to a musical context. The composer has tried to combine the movement between sounds and speech, a poetic language without concern for meaning and in which sound objects or musical phrases may more easily support a concept or an image than words. The piece is divided into five parts, with the middle part playing a relaxing role where the theme is no longer human language.
