Programme notes

Attractions

Attractions… An unusual circus! Of audible natural spaces. Setting in order the attraction between the elements over which we have no control. An audio research revolving around a central aspect: perceptions. The magnetic force of natural elements. Phenomena such as objects falling back down, terrestrial and sonic motion, the influence of planets and tides. Earth, sea, sky, heat, and natural disasters… Specific manifestations are creating illusions, impressions that eventually, become reality. What are we hearing? Only auditory illusions and perceptions.

[English translation: François Couture, viii-08]


Attractions, a series of miniatures, was realized in 2003-05 at the composer’s studio (Productions RTM) for a sound and light installation — which includes movements from the work Musée sonore (2003-05) — featuring lighting engineer François Doyon. The installation Attractions (2005) was presented from January 20 to January 29, 2005 at the Café of the Monument-National, Montréal, during the event Akousma (1), presented by Réseaux, and as part of the Canadian Music Centre (CMC)’s Canadian festival New Music in New Places. The composer thanks the Conseil des arts et des lettres du Québec (CALQ).
