6 pièces avec voix

Access: Use of this item is restricted to the UNT Community
Recording of Simon Jaunin's 6 pièces avec voix. For pre-recorded voice, percussion, and electronics.

In addition, a strong tension is created between the mechanical aspect of development and freedom of tone."

11 september transcript

11 september

Recording of Carl Bergstrøm-Nielsen's "11 september." The text is from a document called "What is MIR?" which was sent out illegally in Chile in 1974 and from the appeal of MIR two years after the taking over by the junta, on September 11, 1975. A left-wing party, MIR stayed in Chile in order to contribute as efficiently as possible to the building of the opposition. Other sound material also includes sounds from a typewriter and a demonstration at Bastad, Sweden in September 1975 at a tennis match between Sweden and Chile with more than 4,000 participants. The text is taken in small excerpts from the document in Spanish, English, Swedish, Danish, French, Dutch, and Icelandic. The piece consists of three sections overlapping each other gradually, which shows the relationship between the spoken words and the immediate danger connected with that text. The first section "as a spontaneous statement," deals with the document at its direct background: the silence is broken, in spite of the danger connected with the writing, manifolding papers that criticize the politics and methods of the junta and discuss the strategy of the opposition. The second section deals with the document as a medium of discussion. At …

Recording of Juan Blanco's 1789-1989. This piece aims to expose how the French Revolution, through the Declaration of the Rights of Man and of the Citizen, inspired the liberation movements of the people against the oppressive and tyrannical governments. The piece is divided into two parts, which give a sound panorama of the triumph, using electronic and acoustic equipment, the latter taken from songs of the time: "Departure to Place de la Bastille"; "Place and capture of the Bastille", "Lamentation of Louis XVI" and "The Permanent Guillotine", and ends with a few words from the Declaration of 1789, in French.

Agnaby

Access: Use of this item is restricted to the UNT Community
Recording of Francesco Giomi's Agnaby. Realized at the Sheffield University Sound Studio (UK). Agnaby is an electroacoustic drama freely inspired by the novel "L'Etranger" by Albert Camus. It is also an attempt to get in touch, from a musical point of view, with Arab culture and language. The material is derived from a) environmental sounds of the Arab urban life and culture; b) fragments from Arab traditional music and texts; c) excerpts from the French text of the book read by Daniel Arfib. The objects, having pre-existing functions and carrying intrinsic associations and meanings, have been processed with different algorithms in order to create different degrees of transformation and recognizability. The formal structure of the piece is divided into two parts; the first follows the idea of a story taking place in an open and free space, with its noises and its sonic life; the second moves along the idea of a close and narrow environment, the courthouse of the novel, with its people, its atmospheres and its more introverted and predestined character. Agnaby was realized during a period of composer residence at the Department of Music of the University of Sheffield and it was premiered in Cagliari during the …
