Transits élémentaires

Description: Recording of Francis Dhomont's "Transits élémentaires" ("Elementary Transits"). The piece is a question of a crossing that could be compared - very modestly - to that of Dante's Virgil. From fire through air, from central magma to the high layers of the atmosphere, the traveler crosses through then Alice's looking glass. The perception then becomes mental. At the formal level, the piece has five concave movements, all of unequal duration articulated by a constantly varied pattern, a sort of hinge. The piece was realized in Dhomont's personal studio as well of the GMEM (Centre National de Création Musicale) in Marseille for the synthesizer sound materials.

Extension 1

Description: Recording of Zagorka Zivkovic's Extension 1 created at the Electronic Music Studio in Stockholm. It is the first in a series of works aiming to extend the sound quality of certain live-instruments. This piece focuses on the cello and manipulating the instrument in different ways - from a low degree (transposition) to an extremely high degree (a combination of layerings of loops and permutations through the use of a Buchla synthesizer). These sounds are then juxtaposed with some pieces of the original sound material in order to give depth to the perception of the instrument.

Yttringar (utterances)

Description: Recording of Åke Parmerud's "Yttringar (utterances)." Form and material derived from the Fibbonacci-series. One of the goals of the piece is to avoid the regular behavior of instruments and electroacoustic sounds as clearly separated entities by creating rapid "shadowings" between the tape-part and the live-part. The piece is performed with the conductor hearing a separate channel click-track in a head-phoneset, enabling him to keep in perfect sync with the tape-part.

Los

Description: Recording of Alain Marchal's Los. The sound material includes percussive metal events and often violent, simple chords of three soprano voices. These elements are antagonistic to one another, where the percussive sounds attack, alter and kill the chords sung by the soprano voices. "Los" in German means "foward!" As a suffix, however, it indicated deprivation or absence. L.O.S. are also the initial of the first words of the sentence by Dante at the gates of Hell "Lasciate Ogni Speranza voi ch'entrate" ("Abandon all hope, you who enter").
