Movement 1 of «La Trilogie»
for voice and tape
ekphonesis V [1979-I] continuing the composer's interest with ‘memories’, this piece explores the ‘library’ of memories, reflections, thoughts, ideas, remembrances, supposedly encountered if (the soloist) could enter the brain of (the composer). During this ‘tour of the brain’ the ‘tourist’ is confronted with the recollections of that brain plus his/her own memories. This exercise in ‘mnemonics’ will also play with the accompanying prerecorded tape as another level of memory, perhaps to an extent with the audience's capacity of concentration, retention and ability to recall information. Theoretically memories should always be available however they may exist in different states of ‘erosion’. Presumably, the brain stores information at the level of chemical-neurological reactions which can be measured as changes in electrical voltages.
