Chile Fertil Provincia...

Description: Recording of Gabriel Berncic's "Chile Fertil Provincia..." Electronic and instrumental sounds, recorded and processed onto four tracks, make up an autonomous flow. To this are added percussion, viola, double bass, tumbadoras and voices, these instruments-persons bringing new visions to the ensemble through the free creation of sequences and/or parallel discourses. "Chile fertil provincia" is the opening line in Alonso de Ercilla y Zœ–iga's La Araucana, the long epic poem which was the first to tell of the conquest of this remote West Indies country in Spanish American literature. It is an allegory about the motherland in ancient and recent times: Latin America told through scenes whose chronology does not obey any absolute historical time. Beginning with a futuristic ancestor and passing through different vassalages, a synthesis forms which evokes the oldest of traditions and aspires to be a binding hymn of the peoples. The titles of this staging music are, in order of performance, as follows: The Woods of Our Ancestors and of Those Yet to Come, The Conqueror's Cross of the South, The Piano of the Inquisition, La Moneda del Valle de Yuro, Jail and Disappearance, The Broad Boulevards Will Open Up. This work, revised several times and finally presented publicly in Barcelona and London, found its final form in 1983. The piece won first prize in the 1984 edition of the Group de Musique electroacoustic contest of Bourges.

Ballada

Description: Recording of Bohdan Mazurek's Ballada. The title of the work relates above all to the epic character of the musical narrative. All the main thematic subjects and the materials of this composition are present in a brief entry. Apart from this entry and the conclusion we can find three different parts, but this division does not in any way interfere with the continuity of the work.

Samarkandko

Description: Recording of Peter Tod Lewis's Samarkandko. This piece is a linear construction on five highly contrasted sources. The affective associations of the materials may suggest a dramatic scenario which, though ambiguous, contradictory, subjective, guided the order on event presentations and their manner of juxtaposition. One evolved theory of the work had precisely to do with the use of extreme, and perhaps at first seemingly unrelated, contrast that such materials can, with care and sensitivity, work together in a composition, to see in the end, related, if only now to the whole. Samarkandko was realized in October of 1976 in the Electronic Music Studios of the University of Iowa.

Satumaisema

Description: Recording of Marja Vesterinen's Satumaisema ("Fairy-tale Landscape") performed by Marja Vesterinen. The piece begins with an image of empty space with strange unknown planets passing over the observer. A raw chord, formed from the interval of the third and produced with the aid of amplitude modulation, symbolizes the friction against the outer atmosphere as the traveler reaches the vicinity of the fairy-tale planet. From beneath the layer of misty clouds is revealed a beautiful land of sweetness and verdure.

Rondo (Bevor Ariadne kommt)

Description: Recording of Georg Katzer's Rondo (Bevor Ariadne kommt). This piece incorporates the dramatic use of sound materials such as noises, instrumental and synthesized sounds. These materials were treated in the style of a classic rondo with three themes that were then interwoven for compositional purposes. The contrasting central part consists of an assembly of sounds. At the end of the work, there appears a recitation of a child related to the title and the subject.

Mugl Entsteigt

Description: Recording of Günther Rabl's Mugl Entsteigt. This piece awakens the ear with new and expressive sounds: dazzling lines, clusters of Argentinian sounds, a kind of organ with soft shapes, an ostinato with colors and tasty traces, all this intertwines with humor and vivacity in real tests of symphonic development where electro-acoustic musicians rarely succeed. The work reveals a temperament, which is rare, here as well as elsewhere.

Metamorphosis III

Description: Recording of John Winiarz's Metamorphosis III. This piece is the last and most concise work from a series begun in 1974. The idea was inspired by an experimental film made by an artist friend in which the beautiful figure of a greyhound dog in flight is transformed into a kaleidoscope of colors and nebulous shapes. An intense aural experience is achieved by a sharp juxtaposition of the humorous and the serious. The piece is composed using a mixture of concrete and electronic material. Tape loops, speed changes, splicing, and filtering techniques were used. Equipment included three stereo tape recorders, a mixer, EMS synthesizer, and a Burwin filter.

Wonders of the Invisible World

Description: Recording of David Koblitz's Wonders of the Invisible World. This piece is comprised of five brief, fragmentary sections in which strands of "imaginary musics" shift in and out of time like the half-remembered images of a dream. The work was composed in the Columbia-Princeton Electronic Music Center (New York) during 1976, using both electronic and acoustic sources. Among the latter were viols, "prepared" guitar, sleighbells, brake drums, balaphon and kora (African instruments).
