Figures Canadiennes (2)

Canadian Figures (2)

Internet sait parfois être extrèmement généreux, et ce sans contre-partie aucune. Après Sonus Ca , l'énorme richesse à écouter sur la toile, voici une revue en ligne que la Communauté Electroacoustique Canadienne édite et met gracieusement à disposition de tous les lecteurs férus d'acousmatique.
Des cadeaux comme ceux-là, on en redemande.
Les articles, selon leurs rédacteurs, sont parfois rédigés en anglais, et parfois en français.

Abstraction et figuration dans ma musique
Du poétique au poïétique
Éléments pour une syntaxe

L’ensemble de ces trois textes de Francis Dhomont constitue une bonne introduction à son parcours de compositeur, à ses choix musicaux, à ses méthodes de travail et à son écriture. “Du poïétique au poétique” décrit son passage de l’instrumental à l’électroacoustique, “Abstraction et figuration dans ma musique” développe les raisons de ses choix et analyse certains procédés compositionnels, “Éléments pour une syntaxe” met l’accent sur l’importance qu’ont pour lui l’écoute et la perception dans les musique acousmatiques.

Entretien avec Francis Dhomont par Rui Eduardo Paes

En 1997 Dhomont compose sa Frankenstein Symphony, prenant comme matériel source des extraits d’œuvres d’une vingtaine des ses étudiants et collègues ainsi que de ses propres compositions. Il répond ici à un questionnaire sur cette œuvre collective que lui a soumis le journaliste portugais Rui Eduardo Paes. Ce dernier s’est inspiré des réponse de Dhomont pour la rédaction, en 1999, d’un article dans la revue Monitor. Cependant, le présent texte, plus complet que l’article publié, est un original.

TES 2008 Website | Photos from the Symposium

The second edition of the Toronto Electroacoustic Symposium was held from 7–9 August 2008, coordinated by the Canadian Electroacoustic Community (CEC), the Faculty of Music at the University of Toronto and New Adventures in Sound Art (NAISA). Composers and sound artists from Toronto, across Canada and around the world discussed their work in two days of sessions: “The State of The Art”, “Personal Reflections”, “The Electroacoustic Voice”, “Soundscapes / Installations”, and “Systems and Techniques”. A selection of the papers from the symposium is published in this issue of eContact!

Composition vs. Documentation by Tae Hong Park [abstract]

This paper addresses the fine line that exists between musical composition and documentation. The issue of musical composition vs. documentation is especially an interesting topic for electroacoustic music works that focus on soundscapes and narrative strategies.

Aural Training for Electroacoustics at Concordia University by Eldad Tsabary [abstract]

Like all musicians, the electroacoustic (EA) music composer/performer must be aurally skilled in order to produce and perform high quality artistic work, yet a very small number of EA-related programs worldwide provide a specialized aural training for EA.

Sympathetic Vibration (Prolongation of Sound by Reflection) by Markus Jones [abstract]

One of the fundamental aims of the project employing recordings of microscopic sound is to assist both staff and students who are visually impaired, aiding them by using sound to identify their location.

Real-time Spectral Analysis and Dispersion by Martin Ritter [abstract]

A new approach to real-time extraction of spectral information from a given sound and the dispersion of its spectral components using the Max/MSP programming environment is described. This is being developed for use in realtime performance processing.
