Ambulator Nemorensis

Description: Recording of David Keane's Ambulator Nemorensis. "Ambulator Nemorensis" was put together as a preliminary study for an experimental film by Nicholas Kendall called Tala. While the actual music used in Tala was quite different from “Ambulator Nemorensis” both are attempts to create an imaginary landscape (or to use Murray Schaefer's term "soundscape"). This piece is an honest attempt to create something beautiful.

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.

Treesway Solo

Description: Recording of Leif Brush's Treesway Solo. “After an intense period of analog familiarization with the range and enormity of available sounds extraterrestrial and in nature, I tried the only techniques then available to me, tape manipulation and speaker placements. The only coloration that I employed in early sound handling was through equalization, balancing and combining mix-downs. I have always monitored from nearly neutral sensors, and my interest has been in trading, configuring and juxtapositionings and in the presentation of sound in natural and climatically different contexts, mainly exterior and in real time. Within the 1980s, I worked with 200-speakers using an Intel 8080 microprocessor used for satellite teleperformances, with collaborators and in outdoor "studios." Structure-wise my work centers around spaces in spaces, scale and proportion, and my sound works’ effect on awareness of the psychological effects of sounds, for instance, from trees and wind transformation via my wind ribbon. I am concentrating on conceptualizing a segue from Internet to real time with on-call two-way availabilities of my data-laden resources. My basic groundwork includes several recyclings of the TerraInstruments, including the signal discs, self-broadcasting trees, lased raindrops and wind ribbon variations in an attempt to express the voltages I seek from natural sources as re-contextualized audible constructs, offering personal connections to the long-term aural memories of earth guests. A surging underlying thinness is just so when I touch(ed) the taught stainless steel strands with a hand-held magnetic DiMarzio sensor. I held onto this recording as THE brief encounter and added an intercession experience. It's "a possession parked in my head" since I knew this Terrain Instrument, and this sample was at its purest, resonant best.” – Leif Brush, composer

Métonymie ou le corps impossible

Description: Recording of Francis Dhomont's Métonymie ou le corps impossible. Two possible readings: 1) "Metonymy", figure of rhetoric; "An object is designated by the no of a similar object". Uses 4 families of sound sources: musical instruments, voices, concert and electronic sounds. Most sound objects are "diverted" from their context; in this lies metonymy. Each family offers collections of objects cutting the duration in pulsed time/smooth time by contrasts, oppositions, slips ... It is also a discourse by associations (one sound calls another). The voice neglects the "discrete units" of language to retain only the prosodic features. 2) Impossible route of a "body" (figured by vocal fragments) locked up, dissolved (murdered?). In another body/place, which unceasingly defeats, tears, covers it. The voice is always spoken out of meaning in a kind of primary glossolalic act. Drift impulse momentum engulfed after multiple attempts of emergence. 4 Parts: 1 - 1'45 Instrumental / vocal / concrete / Electronic 2 - 6'27 Pulses / iterations / cells / groups + 2 'rests' 3 - 4'17 Large notes + mixed variations 4 - 5'02 Frames + coda

Mouvements

Description: Recording of Benno Ammann's Mouvements. Realized at the Ipem Studio in November 1976. Two main structures, computer-controlled (and partly alienated and distorted), form the basic material of the piece, and are mixed, varied and transformed into new sound formations in an aleatoric process by means of high-low filters, tempophones and feedback subjected to variable time. Contrasting sound elements (more figurative characters), produced on the apparatuses DATAPULSE and WAVETEK of Ipem’s studio, accompany the main sections parties principally by variation and increasing movement in ever changing time.

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.
