Drive

Description: Recording of Reynold Weidenaar's Drive. Its glow is soft - silver. It becomes denser - and as the stuff of which it's made grows closer, it becomes harder and harder to keep it round, shining, glowing. Fatigue builds. Will is not enough. Finally, the question of why enters and the blows weaken, are fewer. The center holds itself for a while. To fail means death. The center then comes apart. Bursting or oozing. Back again to the periphery. A counterattack is mustered by the powers of will. A new pounding. A second glowing. But then a greater final fatigue enters. It ends. There isn't anything left. Why is left unanswered, unheard. - Thaddeus Kostrubala, M.D.D, The Joy of Running

Moll (opéra-lilliput pour 6 roches molles)

Description: Recording of Marcelle Deschênes's Moll (opéra-lilliput pour 6 roches molles). An open composition, MOLL (“Soft”) is presented in its full version as an outdoor show and "plain-breath" in 60 beaches, known for: 1) mimes or dancers 2) mobile and sound decors, and floors with sound 3) wind, blast, white noise 4) acoustic instruments (vibrating air, percussion) 5) live electronic instruments 6) magnetic tape (concrete sounds not transformed: insects, water, birds, boat, etc.) electronic sounds, musical quotes (Debussy, Berg, Wagner, Mozart etc.), manipulated sounds 7) sounds of mouth (partial or total live transformation) 8) a child (toys of children). This piece serves as a large group of associations from different levels of human experience. Of a plural nature and structure, this piece constitutes a mosaic made up of the juxtaposition of polymorphic and heterogeneous elements borrowed from models and systems of formation and transformation (cosmogonic, mythological, symbolic, atmospheric, oceanographic, astronomical, geological, musical, etc.) which, by association, can be put in relation with the rocks and their environment.

Prélude pour fête foraine et synthétiseur

Description: Recording of Jean Piché's Prélude pour fête foraine et synthétiseur. This piece is an exploration of the acoustic structure of a popular festival. The environmental sections of the work come from a binaural recording of a celebratory crowd gathered for the annual parade, Carnival of Quebec City. The moments preserved are those preceding the arrival of the parade. The core of the piece was made in the studio with a MOOG synthesizer, using the temporal structure of the environment as a support. The electronic section passes from a slow, static time (reference to the acoustic macrostructure of a crowd - many internal changes but temporal homogeneity overall) to a fast time where the junction is established with the micro structure of the environment. The electronic synthesis of this last moment wants to approach the organic timbres of the voice and the horns that the party-goers use to sound their loud exuberance.
