CONTRIBUTION GUIDELINES

 

 

  1. In order to keep this list as simple and manageable as possible, only use examples that provide a very obvious example of the technique.
  2. Keep the code simple. Do not embed links.
  3. Do not delete any information that you yourself did not create.
  4. Do not edit others’ entries.
  5. Use the following format, and provide all information for each piece. If the composition is an excellent example of more than one technique, list the composition under each appropriate heading.

Composer — Composition (Year), on CDTitle (Year). Brief (10–20 words max!) description of how the technique was used. 1–3 regions where the technique is clearly evident, formatted as 00:00-00:00; 00:00-00:00. http://LinkToSONUS.com

Circuit Bending

  • Martin John Callanan & David James Callanan — 030307 Audio (2002) 00:53:12. A compilation of audio experiments recorded live in late 2002. Electronic syth units where rewired/hotwired while being played. This process inevitably resulted in the irretrievable ‘death’of the unit. These recordings chart the death process – each session becoming more awkward as the unit’s components decayed

Musique Concrète: "acousmatic" techniques

  • Antonio Russek - Viernes Santo (1997) Electroacustic piece constructed with flute samples processed on K2000 Kurzweil engine, and GRM Tools plugins. Realized at Laboratorio de Informatica y Electronica Musical (LIEM) in Madrid Spain. http://sonus.ca/app/ui/more.php?Language=en&MediaID=305

 

 

Musique Concrète: “traditional” techniques

 

Naive

  • Phillip Grant, Frank Koustrup, Kevin Curtis-Norcross - Monkees (2005). Naive in the sense of being out of one's depth: having the gift of two hours of broadcast time but preparation for only about 40-minutes of material, the Invisible PAIN Field Generator ran out of ideas. http://www.sonus.ca/app/ui/more.php?Language=en&MediaID=1795

 

 

Regeneration (also known as Resonation)

 

 

Ring Modulation

  • Frank Koustrup - Dancing on Hot Coals (2005). Main processing is distortion, flanging, filtering, octave shifts. Ring modulation used as ear candy that fades in and out, and moves across the stereo field. Most apparent near the end during sustained feedback. http://www.sonus.ca/app/ui/more.php?Language=en&MediaID=1809

Variation form

  • Risto Holopainen - In Vitro (2001). This piece consists of a series of variations over a seven chord sequence in extended just intonation. The chords are:

(1/5, 1/3, 1/2, 4/7),

(6/7, 3/4, 3/5),

(5/6, 5/7, 5/9, 8/11),

(5/4, 3/4, 1/2, 5/6),

(3/5, 7/10, 9/10, 11/16),

(5/8, 3/4, 1/1, 5/7),

(3/2, 1/1, 3/4, 11/16).
