POUSSEUR, HENRI: Scambi, Trois Visages de Liège, Paraboles-Mix
One of the pioneers, most famously for Scambi, produced at RAI in Milan in the mid-1950s - a work which is endlessly referenced and considered one of the landmarks of the genre. Trois Visages.. from 1961, mixes electronic and concrete materials and approximates ice storms, Industry, Russian constructivist film soundtracks and city montages. An excellent piece for this period, and programmatic. Paraboles.. from 1972, works in real time with 8 different 30 minute pieces used as source material for live mixing, spatialising and processing and appears here in a version prepared for this CD by the composer in 1990. Quiet, rather minimal and static. Interesting and useful notes.
