Kagel, Mauricio - Acustica for experimental sound-producers and loud-speakers

Lägg till önskelista + 79 kr - Utgången


At the invitation of Marc Monnet, Mauricio Kagel performed at the Festival du Printemps des Arts a new version of ACUSTICA, a work composed between 1968 and 1970. This recording offers not only a new look at the piece by its composer, nearly three decades after the original event, but also two versions which allow the listener to grasp the differences between the interpretations.

ACUSTICA is a challenge to traditional instrument-making, and probably also to the electro-acoustic composition of its era. It takes a collection of objects - combs, tissue paper, compressed-air cylinder, plastic tubing, miniature window, record player, conveyor belt, chalumeau, bucket of water, ratchet, inflatable balloon, loudspeaker, bicycle bell-bar, nail violin, walkie-talkie, humming-bird, etc. - along with magnetic tape, and a few acoustic instruments (trombone, panpipes), to produce a work of electronic music.

The musicians must get used to playing these objects musically and know their actions by heart. They do not look at one another. Each musician chooses the moment of his or her action, and may intervene spontaneously at any point in the course of the piece . . . In an ideal world, music would be invented on the spur of the moment.

Kagel's conviction that 'music is a naturalistic art' is materialised in Acustica through everyday objects. 'By latching onto small elements of reality and rearranging them, by redefining the role of players or the function of equipment, Kagel offers possible interpretations of reality, but also enshrouds it, leaving us uncertain in the face of meaning's blank spaces.'
(Werner Klüppelholz)
