Untitled Phenomenas In Concrete

by Francisco Meirino

  • Compact Disc (CD) + Digital Album

    Composed between 2008 and 2011,
    “Untitled Phenomenas In Concrete” is a piece made out of 85 HighC/UPIC*
    sessions and 18 external sounds (recordings of snow falling, bones cracking,
    magnetic fields and insects).
    *UPIC is a computerised musical composition tool, devised by the composer
    Iannis Xenakis. It consists of a digitising tablet linked to a computer, which has a vector display.

    Interested by Xenakis’ approach and wanting to draw the sound before hearing it,
    I spent nearly four years composing/drawing line by line
    “Untitled Phenomenas In Concrete”, listening to every line, gradually adding on
    lines and sounds, erasing, reassembling, gathering and discreetly
    weaving recorded sounds into the piece to “humanise” the whole.

    As a final touch, the piece was transferred and mastered on reel-to-reel tape
    to add some warmth to the cold digital processing of the UPIC.

    Assembled and mastered by Francisco Meirino at Shiver Mobile, Lausanne, Switzerland, between 2008 and 2012.

    Produced by cave12, Geneva. Distributed by Metamkine. With help from la Ville de Lausanne et des affaires culturelles de l’Etat de Vaud
    Cover design by Eva Rittmeyer & Xavier Robel, the CD comes in a cardboard wallet cover, with a black&white poster.
