This CD brings together recent works by Edith Canat de Chizy, all written between 2011 and 2013. The three scores were inspired by the idea of movement / tempo / motion – a lightening gesture in Pierre D’eclair, the sphere of influence relayed by the electronics in Over the Sea, and the dialectic between mobile and immobile in Drift.
2015 from the Scottish-born indie eccentric. Momus has been slyly combining folk, fable and electronics on his witty and highly playable LPs since the mid-1980s. On Glyptothek, recorded in his adopted city of Osaka during the rainy season, he's ransacked his colorful pile of Japanese folk 45s for samples and wrapped a series of cautionary tales for the internet age around the thunder of Shinto festival drums, the keening wail of rural flutes, the tinny riffing of massed shamisens, the clacking of summery claves, and the wild backing vocals of kimono-clad village maidens. The results sound like a UNESCO World Heritage site incongruously taken over by the ghosts of Hilaire Belloc, Cocteau, Kafka, Jarry, Kantor, Petronius, DH Lawrence, Bolan and Bowie.
Recorder virtuoso Erik Bosgraaf (b. 1980) was personally granted permission to arrange for recorder Boulez' (1925-2016) Dialogue de l'ombre double, originally for clarinet and electronics. ...The result is a dynamic interplay between Bosgraaf's recorder and the fascinating electronic timbres and colours. The second work on this release is a musical dialogue between Bosgraaf and electronic wizard Jorrit Tamminga (b. 1973), creating unheard-of sounds of the recorder interwoven in electronic sound tapestries.
