suzon: frostbYte-redsound by \rDaniel Blinkhorn
LeahBarclay: Daniel is one of the most impressive electroacoustic composers in the world today
LeahBarclay: Such control of texture and timbre
WorldListening: Was Daniel Blinkhorn using samples recorded from water andice?
suzon: Resignificamar by Daniel Quaranta
ricardo57: These are Daniel Blinkhorn program notes: In the Arctic region of Raudfjorden, on a pebble strewn beach stands a small, crude wooden cabin. It’s said that on the same site stood an earlier cabin once inhabited by a lone trapper seeking refuge in the fjord after a terrible mining accident left him disfigured. As I stood in the hut, peering out through one of the many cracks that made-up a wall, I wondered what it must have been like, both for the trapper and others like him who chose to live in such climatically extreme isolation. \rI tried to imagine living in concert with such an unrelenting, yet singularly wondrous place; a home amidst the striking duality of extreme elements, harsh winds and frozen ice, and the many fragile, delicate and captivating sounds produced therein. \rWithin this reactive terrain of sound and light was a world so finely tuned it responded to every nuance in temperature, no matter how slight. As the sun arced across the mountain tops, ice fragments in the fjord dissolved, gently hissing and cracking. Occasionally, two fragments collided, producing strangely resonant harmonies refracting off the pebble strewn shore, creating a prismatic soundscape of colour and motion. \rThe majority of recordings found in ‘frostbYte - red sound’ are taken from a day at the hut and its surrounds. The two exceptions are a triangle, which is introduced to provide resonance within the piece (augmenting the resonance that was unexpectedly found within the ice and stones that populated the shoreline so prolifically) and a small dinghy as it slews through an icefield. This second recording occurs toward the end of the composition, and is used to express the rugged motions of the boats rise and fall as it pounded through the frozen fields of ice collecting in dense masses around glaciers. The omni present glissandi throughout the work represents the vertical nature of the surrounding mountains, glaciers and cliff’s that form the contours of the fjord enveloping the cabin. \rThe title itself refers to the name given to the region in the early 17th Century by the English explorer and whaler Robert Fotherby, who referred to the fjord as ‘Red-cliff Sound’.
ricardo57: And this are the program notes by Daniel Quaranta:
ricardo57: El trabajo aqui presentado es una pequeña obra realizada a partir de grabaciones de campo en diferentes lugares; Oceano Pacífico (México, Chile), Oceano Atlantico (Brasil y Argentina). Además del sonido del mar, fui recogiendo basura que sonaba y la grabé. Tomé cientos de muestras de objetos sonantes recogidos en las playas. La basura convive infelizmente con la riqueza de nuestros mares. Este trabajo tiene la intención de resignificar la relación que tenemos con nuestro medio ambiente.
JamesC: The Rising Forces by Jules Bryant
ricardo57: Program notes: The sea level is rising yet we hardly notice it. Scientists provide us evidence that the effects are likely to cause global issues, not just in the near future but now, yet we choose to ignore the advice. \'The Rising Forces\' is a minimalist acousmatic piece consisting of a single note played on an oboe. This then rises by the smallest noticeable amount every few seconds. By the use of delay effects the piece provides a gradually rising pitch with repeating wave-like sound structures. The small pitch change is representative of the gradual change in sea level that we are made aware of but do little about. The total rise of the piece by 1/2 an octave represents the fact that if we continue to do nothing then more is to come.
