Transits élémentaires

Access: Use of this item is restricted to the UNT Community
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.

Inspiravit aeolus

Access: Use of this item is restricted to the UNT Community
Recording of Pierre Barbaud's Inspiravit Aeolus. During the months of July - August 1979, Barbaud did his holiday homework on the island of Panarea, which is part of the eight Aeolian Islands in southern Italy. The title refers to the character Aeolus from Homer's Odyssey who is the Keeper of the Winds. In the hours of siesta, he blows with great gentleness on the bougainvillea; this is the inspiration for all of the algorithms in the piece. After returning to Paris, Barbaud asked Frank Brown and Geneviève Klein to provide the sound sampling program in data that did not provoke violent attacks. A poor telephone transmission during a first experiment, was the cause of a crash that did not lack beauty. The following communications were normal, and everything from those transmissions were kept in the piece.
