This music is largely inspired by the strange and mystical atmosphere that surrounded the impressive crumbling ruin of the Pyrmont Incinerator in Sydney in I took many photographs and recorded a number of sound sources at the ruined incinerator, which formed the basis for many of the Confined Entropy audio compositions.
The sound of this music has been generated through a matrix which produces multidimensional waves on the surface of a dimensional hypersphere. The matrix itself is derived from the countless variations of a magic square 10x A complete cycle of this music consists of 3.
It originally was intended to be performed as a permanent installation. This CD contains a couple of minor cycles for use at home. Dieter Feichtner was definitely one of the most extraordinary musicians on the synthesizer ever since. Improvisation was his natural element. Not only did he deeply understand the nature of electronic sounds, he also was an excellent keyboard player. Many people still remember his concerts with musicians Double Soul - Blue Diamonds / I Cant Use You John Surman, Barre Phillips and many others, or his stylistic parodies, spontanous sketches, unpredictable stories and actions sometimes a horror for concert organizers and club owners.
Beyond that he was engaged with his life's work for more than twenty years: direct solo recordings, in which he brought improvisation to a high architectonical and symphonic level, building the bridge between folkloristic elements and experimental forms with ease. All that is combined with humour and livelyness in an attempt of a sinfonic developement This work shows a temperament, which is quite rare here, like anywhere else.
The mastering of this CD carefully preserves the still fascinating sound of old tube-technology, which was used for the production of all pieces. This recording seems to be an alien Mexican Drummer Man - The Mexicans - A Taste Of Tijuana within the collection of my works. It's neither electronic music, nor is it, what one may call 'contemporary' or 'serious' music whatever this is.
Just a simple compilation of tunes and overdubs, sometimes in a folkloristic manner. I produced them at the same time and they share some elements. And they are my roots. All the music I composed up to now, would miss a dimension without them. A remaster of the original collection, released on cassette The four pieces on this CD demonstrate the amazing possibilities of 'sound-alchemy' still with analog means.
The variform, sometimes even threatening sounds, though invariable coming from tape, seemed to be the anarchic part in this event. The recording of a waterfall forms the basis of the full-length composition. However, Strophe 11 - Günther Rabl - Werke 11 - 1998-99 - Betiri important as its function as Strophe 11 - Günther Rabl - Werke 11 - 1998-99 - Betiri material, it serves as an inexhaustible reservoir of forms and processes, which can be derived from it by means of varoious analytical methods.
This material is complemented by a number of 'imaginary acoustic objects' - numerical oscillators so-called physical models designed especially for this purpose, which are brought to life by the actual sound of the water and its transformation. A commission by the wood carver Gerhard Maier for his exhibition of handmade wooden combs plus a heap of resulting shavings, or, as he would see it: a heap of handmade wood shavings plus combs resulting on this occasion. The primary task was, to refer to Gerhard Maier's living and working situation in his atelier in a formar raylway-station for horse-drawn carriages, which nowadays is a museum near a highly frequented cross-country road connecting Linz with Prague.
The composition makes use of the advanced methods around the so-called Fourier Transformation. It begins with a parody on the morning-traffic on a cross-country road and ends up with the screaming of two million frequencies evoked by a few roaring glissandi. It's the story about the Basque miracle healer Betiri, a young man, who got his extraordinary skills for the simple reason, that nobody was obstructing him.
He receives his skills and he looses them again at the end, as part of the same game. The part of Betiri his story, his monologs, his inner voices is spoken by the actress Alexandra Sommerfeld, all the other parts Betiris family, his girlfriend, the king, the queen, the court by the actor Thomas Kamper. The music symbolizes all the different layers of the story and keeps them permanently present.
It is computermusic derived from a few basic materials, originally on 8 tracks. This CD contains a post-synchronization of the recording of a performance at the Kunsthalle Krems This recording contains three solos, one from the Konzerthaus Vienna, one frome the Kongresshaus Salzburg, and a third one from Sweet Magnolia (And The Travelling Salesman) - Dan Fogelberg - Windows And Walls session on a housboat in Paris.
In addition there are two overdubs, which demonstrate advanced playing-techniques on the bass, developed with ears trained by electroacoustic music and dedicated to the gesture of unitentionally produced sounds — sidenoise. Then, for many years, they were slumbering in my archives. On this CD they are released for Strophe 11 - Günther Rabl - Werke 11 - 1998-99 - Betiri first time. Styx introduces a point of view, a limit of thinking and feeling, from which the most iridescent sound patterns can be conceived in their essential features and thus become accessible for a musical composition.
Derived from five basic sources, fragments of outdoor recordings, endless metamorphoses of sounds and sonorous processes are produced in rising and falling order by a constant change of electronic transformation and conctruction. The remaining audience was maybe helpless, but certainly banished by the power of the performance.
From rising and falling lines of numerical fractions derive all parameters of musical creation There are no layers to be heard that are not derived from formal series, no ornaments marr the face of scales, sounds and tempi Farewell, welltempered tuning - one could say with other words; it will be a farewell without tears : a farewell that leaves the hope for the new Άγγελος Είσαι Μάτια Μου - Various - Γυναίκες Στην Παράδοση well as the reviving relief of old habits into the Da Groovemakers - Echoes From The Jungle beyond temper and humours.
May it give them the knive to go back to their own inner tuning and rhythms far apart from the rough baroque pitch-roster which dominates todays whole occidental musical world.
A travel developes that leads far beyond all accostumed. The illusion should not have been the wandering of Odysseus, but the fantastic experiences and views of a voyage that from time to time crossed the borders of the known world. The voyage ends in the head or maybe it starts there; confusingly the singing of the sirenes mixes with the rush of distant seas. Funny BA. Soleil rouge.
