Catalog # ED MN 1009: EDMN 1009 Ninth volume in this ever fascinating series of releases representing the finest in Rumanian avant garde. There are 3 new Dumitrescu works: "Ouranos II" (for 12 violoncellos, tape and percussion, conducted by Iancu; "Gnosis" (for double bass, performed by Ion Ghita) & "Orion I & II" for 3 groups of percussion, performed by the Hyperion Ensemble. Plus two new works by Ana-Maria Avram: "Swarms III" (for string orchestra) & "Labyrinthe I" (for strings and amplified percussion). "The extraordinary and uncategoriseable Dumitrescu/Avram team. Pursuing the intimate grain of sound through the directed inspiration of performers who somehow produce music while uncovering it, escape control by going through it. Movement and stillness. Even in the storm of percussion ('Orion') is a slow centre." -- Chris Cutler.

Title: Meteors & Pulsars

Label: EDITION MODERN

Format: CD

Price:

Catalog #: EDMN 1010 Complete tracklisting: Dumitrescu: "Meteors & Pulsars (1998)"; (computer assisted composition); "Profondis (1973-1991) (for clarinet, bass clarinet and orchestra); "Origo (1998)" (for cello solo). Avram: "Chaosmos (1998)" (for two orchestras.); "Axe (1998)" (for cello and percussion). "Rejoice is always in order upon the harvest of any new works from set of ultra-modern experimentalists from Rumania. Dumitrescu's electronic pieces here harken back to the golden days of Darmstadt/INA toneburst, via barely audible granules bursting into large-scale eruptions. The orchestral pieces are full of wrongly-embouchered reeds and tonal-misappropriation. Not surprisingly, Avram's pieces contain some of the finer moments on the disc, heavy-scrape strings and Milford-Graves-ish free (but fully notated) percussion. Clearly not losing any steam." --Hrvatski



ED MN 1011 co-release ReR MEGACORP DACH01

New Meteors and Pulsars (Dumitrescu, 1982). For Tape and Percussion. Tape by Iancu Dumitrescu, Soloist - Chris Cutler. Inspired by an event in 1987 when the composer witnessed a meteor impact, this cataclysmic piece is a series of enormous explosions, which are mediated and interspersed with Chris Cutler's electronic drum improvisations. An inspired, innovative and unmissable performance.
Nouvelle Axe (Avram, 1988) Hyperion Ensemble. Fresh from writing a string quartet for the Kronos, the composer develops an intense series of miniature debates, focusing on noise, distortion and small nuances of expression. Challenging, and almost delicate work.
Life On Earth (Cutler, 1998) Hyperion Ensemble with Ana Maria Avram - Prepared Piano, Tim Hodgkinson - Clarinet and Bass Clarinet, Chris Cutler - Percussion. For 'Life On Earth' the music, including dynamics, was determined by a series of cards, and the durations were determined by time it took seven rings of candles to burn down. The intention was to create unusual unbalanced ensembles, with the performers unable to fall into habitual roles. Chris Cutler says,"absorb without listening".
Black Death and Errors in Construction (Hodgkinson, 1988) Hyperion Ensemble with Ana Maria Avram - Piano, Chris Cutler - percussion, Tim Hodgkinson -Clarinet, Bass Clarinet and Tape. Tape by Tim Hodgkinson. The title refers to the reasons why Sienna Cathedral was never finished, and here the Hyperion Ensemble re-invent a piece Tim premiered on his recent CD 'Pragma'. Tim's compositions are gaining a new maturity, and this is a lively and engaging performance.

Catalog Number: EDMN 1012

FYI: these two new releases on EDMN (1012 & 1013) are pressed on CDR's with full color printed labels and color xerox booklets. Iancu claims that they switched to this method of production because the sound is better than on traditionally pressed CDs and they are using very high quality audio CDRs for reproduction. "New fruit from this Rumanian team of sonic futurists. Four new works, two from each. Dumitrescu's half features "Etoiles Brisees (I)" (1998, "musique assistee par ordinateur," which according to Iancu translates as "computer assisted music, a music transformed in computer, with different softwares, at different degrees of transformation of a sound,") and "Etoiles Brisees (II) (1998, for prepared piano, alto, 2 violas, contrabass, bass clarinet, percussions and tape; featuring a host of known instrumentalists including Chris Cutler, Tim Hodgkinson, Alexandru Dutulescu, Ioan-Marius Lacraru, Ion Ghita, Vasile Nedelcu, and Dumitrescu himself). Avram pieces are: "Anamorphosis" (1998, a string quartet, quite knowledgeable of the inner workings of both Bartok and Lachenmann's sound-worlds) & "Second Axe" (1998, for orchestra & strings, performed by the Hyperion Symphony Orchestra, directed by Ana-Maria Avram). High quality audio-examples, as always." -- Hrvatski.

“Four radical pieces for a great - and young - American string quartet who give life and power to four intense compositions (3 for quartet, one for quartet and tape). Spectralism is slowly becoming more accepted and located in the listening world, and the reduced nature of a string quartet, combined with the great sensitivity of these players, urges minute concentration on the part of both performers and the listeners (digital silence also helps) which is repaid in an edge-of-seat, time-locked existentiality. The four pieces move in different directions and are saturated with detail, the compositions seeming to rise out of the grain of the performance, rather than being an anachronous imposition upon it - a tribute to the vision and skill of the composers, who tread a perilous path between precision and dependency - demanding immediacy through prevision, open scoring and will; a dangerously ambiguous endeavour that erases the power relations between individuality and collectivity at the point of realisation. There are three pages of clunking text by Ben Watson in the accompanying booklet that, to this reader, seem completely inappropriate - an incomprehensible antithesis to the subtlety, depth and sensitivity of the music. Unhappily the delivery of this text as part of the concert is included as an unannounced final track on the CD. toe-curlingly inappropriate. But skip-able” ( ReR Megacorp, London)

Catalog #: EDMN 2004"Cosmos (1985) is the key work of Gerard Papes first compositional period. Already greatly immersed in the aesthetic of 'composing with the sound itself? due to the influence of his teacher George Cacioppo, as well as due to his great admiration for the musics of Varese arid Xenakis, Cosmos was Pape's first attempt to find new large scale musical forms appropriate for the transformation of sound.Tantric Transformations (2002): This is rare work (for me) in that it is for tape alone. All material is derived from a single source -- a short excerpt of Tibetan ritual music. Thus, the title refers to the electroacoustic transformation of this tantric ritual music.


EDITION MODERNs HISTORICAL RECORDINGS COLLECTION
ELITESOUND FOREVER

The two experimental composers Iancu Dumitrescu and Ana-Maria Avram have developped a new sotware which remove noises, scratching and the unwanting accidents from the old, 78 tours recordings.

Elitesound Forever CD serie propose the satisfaction of a sound completely purified and recreated in its whole freshness, representing the debute of a THIRD GENERATION OF HISTORICAL SOUND ( if we consider the 78 tours the first generation, and the translation on CDs the second )

The technique of Iancu Dumitrescu and Ana-Maria Avram consist in the application of this new software they created specially for this purpose, and also , after that, in a very hard work for the sound restoration

In fact, it is for the first time we can hear a sonorous presence comparable with modern recordings, a purified timbre and the best spatial definition.

The first issues of this serie are focused for the moment on the interpreter activity of George Enescu and Yehudi Menuhin.

"The Enescu-Menuhin edition - a legacy of two geniuses"- contains for the moment 6 CDs : ED MN 3001, EDMN 3002, EDMN 3003, 3004, 3005/6

Seven other Cds with unknown recordings are in work and will be released soon.
