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 …

Air

Access: Use of this item is restricted to the UNT Community
Recording of Zlatko Tanodi's Air. This piece was composed for bass clarinet and tape in 1997, and was first performed at the Music Biennale Zagreb festival in 1997 (the soloist for that performance was Ratko Vojtek). The composer's inspiration was the polysemy of the word air (air, atmosphere, area, aria, song with accompaniment). The motto of the whole work is a paraphrase of the concept of “air you were, air you are, and into air you shall return;” sound is treated as a special physical condition of the air needed for acoustic perception, as well as for starting of the resonance of the bass clarinet’s body. While a naked instrument looks for its own expression, offering building material heartlessly exploited by sampling machines, a cause-effect of man and machine appears: it is not possible to distinguish who is who. The acoustic instrument would like to sound like an electronic one, and electronic instruments more faithfully imitate acoustic ones. However, at the end, all these are just vibrations in the air, all is but air. Other association lines are also possible (e.g. building, history, money ways, etc.). This composition has four movements: RespIRAtion, PrepARatIon, Aria and Gone with the Wind. The …

Au loin... bleu

Access: Use of this item is restricted to the UNT Community
Recording of Elsa Justel's Au lion...bleu. Words, phonemes, vocal gestures are transformed into a musical flow enriched by the colors specific to each of the participating languages. The word disguises itself as an atmosphere; it expresses its essence to merge with the music. Clouds of sighs fly away in a blue space, like fugitive wings rushing towards a distant horizon. The voice becomes matter of an unknown language. However, the sound discourse communicates a meaning to us. Of the lived experience, of the scent and of the sensitive unreality.

Each wave begins with the thinnest of sounds, builds towards a climax and, finally, dissolves.
