COMPOSING WITH PROCESS #5.1 podcast
Posted 19 December 2011 - 10:14 AM
By Mark Fell and Joe Gilmore. Narrated by Connie Treanor.
The fifth episode in the series continues to explore the idea of time in music practice, particularly in relation to duration. The show looks at how music is measured in terms of both micro and macroscopic intervals: through granular synthesis, where sound is constructed from microscopic sonic 'grains', to extended works whose duration is measured not in minutes and seconds, but years. Bringing together ideas and theories of the engineer Denis Gabor and composers Iannis Xenakis and Curtis Roads, this episode examines early tape and computer music works using granular and pulsar synthesis. The show closes with a focus on two recent treatments of time in music: by the German artist Hanne Darboven and media producer Terre Thaemlitz.
