Notes

  • Program notes: 

    1. Pre-recorded track (with ´engine´ huming) should start the performance.
    2. Violin player slowly (peacefully) enters the STAGE
    3. Using BOSS RC-300 LOOP STATION (or any device with same working abilities) do RECORD given material as follows:
    a) DO RECORD FIRST VOICE (SYSTEM) OF REFRAIN SEPARATELY and LOOP IT IMMEDIATELY.
    AFTER DOING SO, CONTINUE WITH SECOND VOICE ETC. after ALL 6 VOICES ARE RECORDED
    AND LOOPED CREATING ONE GIANT CONTINUOS LOOP.
    b) AFTER FINISHING REFRAIN DO RECORD ELEGIA IN THE SAME MANNER.
    IMPORTANT !!! BE CAREFUL TO MAKE IT ALL IN REAL TIME and WITH GREAT PRECISION of TIMING!
    4. Now it is time to slowly destroy all given tracks by randomly use of filters and other adds of the electronic device.
    SOUND ENGINEER COULD PROVIDE ALL NECESSARY TO BUILT UP CODA WHICH SHOULD DESTROY the sounding
    result of the recording session and looping process by some appropriate softwear (ABLETON LIVE, or any other perfectly suitable for the composer´s idea)
    5. CD TRACK WILL ACCOMPANY SOLOIST THROUGHOUT THE PROCESS UNTIL THE VERY END.
    6. By the beginning of CODA violin player should LEAVE the STAGE (if there is sound engineer for providing all neccesary to finish the piece).
    If NOT - violinist have to operated the END of the piece by HIM/HER-SELF!
    7. The END of the piece SHOULD DESTROY WHOLE SOUNDING RESULT BY USE OF APPROPRIATE SOFTWARE
    FOR COLLAPSING ALL RECORDED TRACKS INTO ONE HUGE SOUND-CLUSTER. Use your imagination for terminal Extinction.
    8. THEN: a) LONG FADE-OUT, or
    b) RADICAL CUT OFF
    9. OVERAL VOLUME: at the beginning soft, with slowly increasing volume right to the end´s brute noise.
    10. Narcissus was space shutle bearing sleeping lieutenant Ellen Louise Ripley at the end of ALIEN and beginning of ALIENS movies.
