Sonic Circuits VI

One Sheet: 

Warren Burt (Australia): La Strega Bianca Della Luna II (The White Witch of the Moon) 8:06 A sensuous drone of multiple superimposed equal temperaments pulse you to oblivion for a while.

David Barnes (MA): Panic in Legoland 5:10 Barnes is handy with a multi-track tape recorder but it has not necessarily sped up his compositional process; this high-energy work took 8 months to complete and features, among other things, the sounds of scissors, a chain saw, a box of Legos, and circuit-bent gizmos. 

Paul Koonce (NJ): Walkabout 16:30 Koonce’s interest in the integration of environmental sounds with instrumental music took him down a “walkabout path,” resulting in this compelling piece which examines the importance placed on style in music today. Winner of the 1998 Bourges Prize. 

Pedro Rebelo (Scotland): 1st of 3 Shorts About Noise and Rhythm 3:13 Just that. 

Andre Ruschkowski (Germany): Les pas interieurs (Inner Steps) 11:12 The sounds of peoples’ footsteps walking or running in the unusual acoustic environment outside the composer’s studio—combined with the wonders of granular synthesis. 

Rasmus B. Lunding (Denmark): Det Noedvendige (The Necessity) 14:15 Post-punk guitarist and engineer Lunding has crafted a sensuous and eerie setting of a Danish poem by noted environmental writer Thornkild Bjornvig. 

Stephen Montague (England): Tigida Pipa 9:30 Montague spent six years revising this peice after its completion; the result consists of invented words and percussive sounds, all of which contain an inherent rhythmic structure that serves to move the work through a series of high speed twists and turns. 

Reviews: 

Very impressive material…It was refreshing to hear music of such originality and quality
