Microstructures

Description: Recording of Włodzimierz Kotoński's Microstructures. This piece utilizes sections of fragmented tape to create a montage of sound layers in very dense structures. The composer used the sound of knocking on wood, metal, and glass to form a new sound material and spatialization of sound. These sounds recorded on magnetic tape were cut, melted, and glued randomly into random sequences from which loops of different length were formed and copied onto a layer which finally resulted in this desirable microstructure.

Concentric. A question with two answers.

Description: Recording of Octavian Nemescu's "Concentric. A question with two answers." for instrumental ensemble and tape. The piece is a reaction to Charles Ives' "Unanswered Question," which is, in comparison, schizoid in nature, marked by breach, discord, disparity and incommunicability. There are three layered music layers in "Concentric" which join together to create a kind of communion that is timeless through the use of resonant harmonic issued by a fundamental sound C, placed in the deepest register, like a natural archetype (of a cosmic and supercosmic presence coming from the depths of existence).

Hydrophonie I

Description: Recording of Werner Kaegi's Hydeophonie I for 4-track tape. It was composed and realized in 1969 in the studios of the Institute of Sonology in Utrecht (Holland). The piece is based on the possibilities offered by a generator with a variable function which, at the time, preceded the digital computer. Kaegi's work is based on programmed and descriptive structures. All the musical material was generated in a purely synthetic way, all resembling the "reality" having come only from the musical structures.

Combinaisons en cercles

Description: Recording of Octavian Nemescu's Combinaisons en cercles. It is a version at the request of Partita Radicale with a new timbral guise. The work is coceived in three different layers of sound. The surface, representing everyday (diurnal) consciousness, consists of brief and fleeting timbral events almost invariably played forte. A somewhat subdued middle layer provides semiconscious recollections and anticipations of the overall timbral fabric. The deepest layer is made up of complex static sounds, primarily consisting of the vibration of a universal whisper which reveals hidden Nature. This layer of immutable peace, into which all things converge, evokes the nocturnal state of the cosmic unconscious.
