Jardin Secret I

Description: Jardin Secret I (Secret Garden, 1984-85) is a first study in a series of works, for which I have concentrated in making computer research on the relations between different musical parameters and processes, as well as my own musical thinking. I shaped primary models for various different, well-defined musical situations. Starting from these models, I intended to control various musical parameters, without forgetting their particular features. I wanted to find out whether these parameters could be treated starting from the same outset point. Since i have been interested for a long time in the idea of (musical) interpolation, my starting point was also partly determined by this interest, in relation to various specific musical and physical parameters. The dominating type of process in this etude is a gradual interpolation between two points, realized on different parameters in different scales. Sometimes this process is combined with sharp transitions between different characteristics in other parameters. The color and tone levels of the sounds are intertwined into an indissoluble processor FPS-100. All the sound material for the piece has been synthesized with this version of Chant. The mixing of the sound material was made with a Sony 24-track digital tape recorder. (KS)

De Motu Naturae

Description: Recording of John Rimmer's De Motu Naturae. The work is a musical reflection on the author's personal environment.
