Dialodiadi

Description: Recording of Diego Dall'osto's Dialodiadi. The composition is conceived like a dialogue between flute and clarinet, and the same in a virtual form, produced by means of the VL1-Yamaha (virtual acoustic synthesizer), which is based on "physical models" for reproducing acoustic instruments. The piece is in six parts, each is called "DIADE" if the dialogue is between a real instrument and his virtual "projection" (es. real flute and virtual flute), or "DUO", if the dialogue is between a real instrument and the virtual version of the other (es. real clarinet and virtual flute).

Terracota

Description: Recording of Antonio Fernandez Ros' Terracota. This piece was realized after taping the conversation between two people in the Veneto region in Italy. Both speaking in Veneto dialect and talk about the meaning of land, tradition and language. This conversation was later edited (with no electronic modification) and together with the edition of other elements, was turned into a dramatic portrait of the protagonists. The secret or clue of this piece lies in the sound and meaning of spoken language. All the other sonic elements act purely as support to what is already contained in the words and expressions used by the protagonists.

Forêt profonde comprises 13 sections, of which the 6 Rooms (sections 1, 3, 6, 8, 10 and 12) constitute transit periods/areas, secret passages of sort, between the seven thematic sections (sections 2, 4,5, 7, 9, 11 and 13). These Rooms contain little or no text. Each of the 13 sections borrows a brief element, a color, an atmosphere, from the 13 Kinderszenen (Scenes from Childhood) op. 15 from Schumann, as a tribute to this pathetic composer, engulfed in the depth of his forest.

Le chant des pistes

Description: Recording of Jean-Louis Poliart's Le chant des pistes. For electronics. The Dreamtime is this very distant period, this lost paradise of which the Aborigines still speak, during which each thing and each being had a soul, from which emanated a vibration, a sound, a music. Instant lighting where everything is possible in total harmony starting from the simplest things. This primitive and virgin period unfolds in melodic tracks that lead to other perceptions, to different emotions. Dreamtime is a three-part cycle: Prelude, Madelgaire le Souffle, and Le chant des pistes.

Hérimoncourt

Description: Recording of Philip Samartzis' Hérimoncourt. Based on environmental recordings of the Peaugot Chateau and surrounding grounds, located in Herimoncourt, France. . The Peaugot Chateau is a large, wooden, acoustically dense building which has continually shifting moods and textures. The intention was to create a sonic narrative which captured the dense acoustic character of the estate with an emphasis on the granulation of many of the sounds I recorded there. The granulation technique enabled me to sonically replicate the creaking tones which permeate through every crevice of Herimoncourt.

Fili Grani

Description: Recording of Riccardo Dapelo's Fili Grani. For clarinet and tape. The work is a part of a project in which to different composers are assigned two verses of E. Sanguineti's "TIPARCHETIPI". The human voice is stretched until its single sonic components are perceptible. At this level subtle variations are made on the time-expanded sounds, by interpolating grains of the bass clarinet between the voice grains. The so obtained layers are then rearranged at different rates, creating a spectral "continuum", alternating voice-like and clarinet-like sounds. The piece was developed in Csound language.

3b

The electroacoustic material comes entirely from bassoon sounds.

Die Unsichtbare front

Description: Recording of Ipke Starke's Die Unsichtbare front. The composer notes the following: The spatial installation of this work was designed and realized for the highest space in the building of the Technical Collections of the city of Dresden. This place just below the dome of the tower with its exceptional view of the city and the nearby radio tower is part of the work. The composition itself consists of 16 minutes of music on magnetic tape, constantly looped, spatialized and broadcast through the 7 loudspeakers configured in the space. The piece is based on modulations of extremely high frequencies, up to the limits of the audible, whose dynamic degree barely reaches the threshold of perception. What is significant vis-à-vis the content of the play is their interruption by documentary material: news in different languages, interviews, recordings of demonstrations, reports and documents from the archives, and synthetically generated or processed sounds of associative character. This confrontation of situational elements with documentary elements generates contradictory tensions in space. The architectural form of this one is also substantial: first of all, the space is presented in a neutral way, not done on purpose for pleasure. The exposed location of the dome provides openness, the experience of seeing the big picture. After the East German secret service left its offices, housed here six years ago, public access is now, the finished restoration work, made possible again. The space was left in its pristine state. It gives the impression of transparency, a membrane permeable to the signal. Within this constellation, the documentary and definable material fulfills the expectations of habitual sensual pleasure, and the desired ornament appears, but distanced and in modern form, that is, as information. or, more correctly, clothed with information, since the information itself is of no importance and is far from …

Proiezioni

Description: Recording of Elio Martusciello's Proiezioni. This work is described by the composer as a musical tribute to cinema; it is an integral part of an audiovisual project with the film and video research collective "Cane Capovolto" by A. Aiello. This project uses as sole sound and visual source only those instruments and objects (projectors, cameras, reels, etc.) which are related to Cinematographic Art. Concerning the musical part, these old instruments (with their noisy metallic mechanisms and the light sound of long films) offer the composer a rich palette of colors and evocative sonorities.
