Electron-Positron

Description: Recording of Jean-Claude's Electron-Positron, the sonic composition for 8 soundtracks diffused by a network of loudspeakers, the first sequence lasts 2 mintutes, and the second sequence lasts 1 minute. The techniques used were a computer synthesis of paradoxical sounds that seem to go up indefinitely or speed up indefinitely, digital spatialization of sounds in real-time, time-stretching of speech without frequency transposition using Grabor grains analysis-synthesis. At the beginning the sound of the large European Electron-Positron Collider was obtained by demodulation, corresponding to the phase oscillation of particle packets with respect to the acceleration frequency. The oscillation is heard in the audible domain around G-sharp. The sound eventually glides, due to the effect of digital resonant filters the central frequencies of which glide in real-time while staying octave apart. Indefinite accents or accelerations have been realized through additive synthesis using the Music V program. This piece was composed at the request of Centre European de Recherche Nucleaire for the inaugural act of the large Electron-Positron Collider of CERN, inaugurated in Geneva on November 13, 1989.

Attracteurs Étranges

Description: Recording of Jean-Claude Risset's Attracteurs Étranges, performed by Serge Conte, is a computer-produced piece for clarinet and tape. The piece has four sections of unequal lengths: I. Initial (about 7 minutes), the sonorous pitches gravitate above a high B - a point attractor; II. Vocal (about 2 minutes and 35 seconds, A brief encounter between the clarinet and the voice of Daniel Arfib, slowed down, noisy, hybridized with the instrument; III. Vertical (about 5 minutes 20 seconds), the clarinet energizes strained string-like filters, then turbulent multiphonic sounds echo deep, charged inharmonic sounds; IV. Horizontal (about 6 minutes and 30 seconds), here melodic aspects dominate: the clarinet dialogues with its illusory shadow, some figures appear at different scales, such as in fractal structures. The piece was commissioned by ARCAM at the request of Michel Portal, for his "carte blanche" during the Biennale d'Hy res 1988. It appears, recorded by Serge Conte, on the CD Prix Magisterium, Bourges 1998, Cultures Žlectroniques 11, IMEB / UNESCO / CIME. The soloist dialogues with a band which at times echoes him, and which at other times contrasts with him. Part of the sound material of the tape comes from musical phrases recorded by Portal and modified by computer (temporal stretching, spatialization) either with the SYTER real-time processor, or with the MUSIC V program or a sound transformation program, SOUND MUTATIONS, created by Daniel Arfib.

Voilements

Description: Recording of Jean-Claude Risset's Voilements, performed by Daniel Kientzy, for tenor saxophone and tape. The tape was produced in Marseille (Faculty of Sciences of Luminy and Laboratory of Mechanics and Acoustics of the CNRS). The sounds recorded by Daniel Kientzy have been transformed using the SYTER audio processor designed at INA-GRM by Jean-François Allouis and industrialized by Digilog.The synth sounds were produced on an IBM-PC compatible computer using the version of the MUSICV program extended by Daniel Arfib; they were specified by instrumental gestures on a MIDI keyboard, then transcribed into MUSIC V code. This transcoding, carried out by Frédéric Boyer, allows to combine the resources of the synthesis and the real-time commands. was written at the request of Daniel Kientzy and is dedicated to Kientzy.
