lunaire, apparizioni

    fließend (b) performed at the Accademia di Belle Arti in Bologna Ensemble Zipangu conducted by Fabio Sperandio       fließend (b) • Zipangu [Download]     Ensemble Zipangu Direttore: Fabio Sperandio Violini: Alessandro Di Marco, Giacomo Scarponi, Emanuele Benfenati, Anton Berovski, Elvi Berovski, Alessandro Bonetti, David Caramia, Silvia Mandolini, Elena Maury, Cosimo Paoli Viole: Corrado Carnevali, Loris Dal Bo, Emanuela Bascetta, Nicola Calzolari Violoncelli: Mattia Cipolli, Vittorio Piombo, Roberto Cima, Chiara Tenan Contrabbasso: Gianandrea Pignoni   The idea of this concert was born of desire to welcome our friend Giorgio Magnanensi, passing through the city, performing his music. To present the composer is an authoritative Giordano Montecchi, always accomplice, whom we thank. It was 1989. That year, the many (already) precarious ones who for years had taught in the Conservatory, got their tenure. So we found ourselves in Parma, Giorgio Magnanensi and myself, he was teaching Harmony and Counterpoint and I History of Music. First colleagues – just a “hello ….. hello ….” – and then, after all, friends together with the discovery of having both a double, or perhaps multiple, musical identity. There was the Magnanensi professor at the Conservatory and there was the Magnanensi who spent the summers in Siena as assistant and then friend of Franco Donatoni. And then there was the “after hours” Giorgio, for whom music meant enthusiasm, adventure, play, falling in love, furores. All translated into an irrepressible creativity pouring into the discovery, experimentation and refinement of a totally free, intuitive and anti-academic music making. Creativity without restraints, yes, but especially infectious and engaging – and this was (as is always the case) the key to everything. Because if autistic experimentalism is a form of pollution of today’s music, creative liberation, conceived as a common, joyful and shared experience, is a dimension that music always needs, like us oxygen. The basic system or device was a poor electronics, driven by inexhaustible ingeniousness, perhaps an electric guitar resting on the knees and reinvented with heterodox interventions and techniques. But, above all, an extreme, empathetic, thoughtful sensitivity for the combination of sounds among themselves and for their flourishing in an unsuspected and enchanting music: that virtue that once was called “gusto“. Among contemplation, light textures and excitements, it was a desire, a pure musical pleasure, often reached together with a small group of improvisers, mutually and intimately listening, also captured in those not only playful, but also spiritually regenerating sound games. And unforgettable. No conservatory or academy could, can or will ever teach this way of making – or rather “being” – music. And that is precisely the germ of that aesthetic subversion that most (if noticed) remove, so as not to undermine the subtly hypocritical ménage of academic avant-garde as Morton Feldman called it. But Giorgio Magnanensi did not remove it. He listened to it, indeed, and he believed it. And at some point he left, slamming the door. After years in which his hyper-reactivity to the tangles of inefficiencies, mediocrity and pettiness that the routine of the typical Italian establishment was inexorably growing: Conservatories, Publishers, Commissions, Competitions, Festival, Theaters … enough! Away! It was 1999. And Giorgio Magnanensi went to Canada to stay there. Telling what he found there would seem like an exercise in xenophilia. Let’s just say that...

little wheel spin and spin

from Buffy Remix Veda Hille, CBC Radio Orchestra, Alain Trudel Conductor little wheel [Download] Sometimes special songs seem to give a strong voice to the spirit of our time. This project and its making was also special in the way it manifested itself. Maybe it’s just about beauty, something we only acknowledge as an exception and not as an option. “We are helpless, we are part of, we are little wheels. One and one and one make three… giving everything they have.” (Carl Wilson) So let’s hope in a philosophy that transcends these times, one that can overcome the limitation of die Zeitgeist, as I can not reconcile myself with the idea that the spirit of our time is also our own spirit.   Little Wheels Spin and Spin Big wheels turn around & around Merry Christmas Jingle Bells Christ is born and the devil’s in hell hearts they shrink Pockets swell Everybody know and nobody tell Little Wheels Spin and Spin Big wheels turn around & around Oh the sins of Caesar’s men cry the pious citizens who petty thieve the 5 & 10s and the big wheels turn around and around Little Wheels Spin and Spin Big wheels turn around & around Blame the angels, blame the fates, Blame the Jews or your sister Kate Teach your children how to hate and the big wheels turn around and around Little Wheels Spin and Spin Big wheels turn around & around Turn your back on weeds you’ve hoed silly sinful seeds you’ve sowed Add your straw to the camel’s load Pray like hell when your world explode Little Wheels Spin and Spin Big wheels turn around & around Swing your girl fiddler say Later on the piper pay Do see do, swing and sway Dead will dance on judgement day Little Wheels Spin and Spin Big wheels turn around & around    Little Wheel Spin and Spin with the PAO and Veda Hille last September: little wheel PAO rev [Download]     from Buffy Sainte Marie’s 1966 album Little Wheel Spin and Spin: My country ‘Tis Of Thy People You’re Dying             636 total views, 1 views today Share on...

tamas III

  for shamisen and Japanese percussion ensemble tamas III *   Pro Musica Nipponia 40th Program   tamas III was premiered by Pro Musica Nipponia on January 25, 2005 in occasion of their 40th anniversary celebration   This piece is the result of a meeting in which I had the pleasure of sharing the same love for Beauty with a wonderful musician like Hirokazu Sugiura. So, still and again, I assimilate myself to my subjectivity, assimilating myself to it in an attempt to “see” through a more speculative method of thought. In a constant motion toward or away from potential, the tentative, the ephemeral… first meeting, last meeting.

lalít III • tre pannelli con Coda

lalít III • tre pannelli con Coda

  A great performance of lalít III • tre pannelli con Coda by Transmission lalít III [Download]  Guy Pelletier, flute Lori Freedman, bass clarinet  Alain Giguère, violin Julie Trudeau, cello Julien Grégoire, percussion Brigitte Poulin, piano with Brice Gatinet, electronics   lalít III (tre pannelli con Coda) for alto flute, bass clarinet, violin, cello, piano, percussion and electronics (2012) lalít III is dedicated to Transmission   My work aspires to be speechless, not eloquent, without the urgency of communicating anything. If it expresses anything at all, that is pure character – essence more than intentionality. It manifests potential energy more than activity, relying on its own bare existence. lalít III has been written thinking to what Luciano Berio once described as a “virtuosism of collaboration”. Here, in this kind of virtuosism, writing is fulfilled in the possibility of existing in the pure hands of (…those yes) really eloquent artists. lalít III is articulated in three panels and Coda with defined sound and colour qualities. The live electronics component is performed live and freely interacting with the performance of the written materials. In my practice I use the technique of collage and assemblage of heterogeneous forms with a programmatic character in which pre-formed material (written and/or recorded) is treated as raw material available for re-creation. The material of form is here the material’s form. The fragmented nature of the events underlines its character of work in progress: a sort of tale without beginning and ending, a permeable space declaring its non-obstruction to the diverse voices and soundscapes. Simultaneity, policentricity and overlapping points of view are the characteristic elements of this work. The sound texture is not merely the addition or subtraction of a number of isolated events, but is a more complex combination of sound events that works in a strategy of an imaginary scenography. Other elements for a possible reading of lalít III’s soundscape are: waveforms, slowness, speed, space.     lalít III (tre pannelli con Coda) • Performance Notes   Panel I   [aprox. 4’] Instruments enter scattered on material A, gradually and freely interpolating α materials. The idea is to create a variable texture crossfading from A to α increasing the density and the dynamic of this section. The general dynamic of this section should be: pp    ff   Panel II   [aprox. 1’/1’30”] On cue (one player will give the cue for the change) everyone jumps on Cue1. Suddenly and without interruption: pp subito Cue 1 should last at least 1 minute; again a very textural segment with very variable speed. After 1 min each player ad libitum and not simultaneously move to Cue 2   Panel III   [aprox. 1’/1:30]   Cue 2 should allow for more “space”, so players should repeat the given segments articulating more counterpoint-like textures with variable instrumental densities, and possibly improvising on the given material while dialoguing with the electronics. General dynamics of this panel is still soft but variations are welcome, while gradually fading to ppppp Coda   [aprox. 2’] Coda starts without gaps, just after the fade out of Panel III. From ϒ repeat twice, gradually slowing down to  =50 , and not trying to maintain any synchronization among the parts.         879 total views, 1 views today Share on...

TDU/HRO • le feu et l’artifice

for 4 sax, 4 trumpet, 4 trombones, violin, electric guitar, piano, bass, drums and percussion dedicated to the Hard Rubber Orchestra and John Korsrud TDU/HRO • le feu et l’artifice   While writing for or conducting the Hard Rubber Orchestra I have always had a lot of fun and deeply enjoyed the energy and sounds of all the great musicians of this band. Therefore I have been very excited writing this new piece, and once again I wanted to take advantage of my association to the ensemble and its potentials, writing a piece that would enhance the virtuosic qualities of all its members. A virtuosity based rather on a idea of collaboration than just on skills and technologies involved in a purely technical execution; its main goal being to attain an intense creative flow and a reinforcement of the balance between a purely visceral co-creation (le feu) and a purely intellectual interpretation (l’artifice). The score is also a further investigation of teatro dell’udito (TDU) project in which I explore techniques of collage and assemblage of heterogeneous forms with a programmatic character, evolving in relationship rather than static blocks. The fragmented nature of these forms underlines its character of work in progress: a sort of tale without beginning and ending, a permeable space declaring its non–obstruction to diverse voices and soundscapes and working in a strategy of an imaginary scenography.               2,843 total views, 3 views today Share on...

Guitar: Daryl Jahnke Violin: Cam Wilson El. Bass & Db: Laurence Mollerup Percussion: Jack Duncan Drums: Bernie Arai Conductor: Giorgio Magnanensi   re-reading this…: Entendre, “to hear” also means comprendre. “to understand,” as if “hearing” were above all “hearing say ” (rather than “hearing sound”), or rather, as if in all “hearing” there had to be a “hearing say,” regardless of whether the sound perceived was a word or not. But even that might be reversible: in all saying (and I mean in all discourse, in the whole chain of meaning) there is hearing, and in hearing itself, at the very bottom of it, a listening. Which means: perhaps it is necessary that sense not be content to make sense (or to be logos), but that it want also to resound. My whole proposal will revolve around such a fundamental resonance, even around a resonance as a foundation, as a first or last profundity of “sense” itself (or of truth) .  [from Jean-Luc Nancy, Listening]       1,089 total views, 2 views today Share on...

il tempo dei baleni (4F)

Posted by on 6:10 am in Scores | 0 comments

il tempo dei baleni (4F)

I wrote this short piece as a little homage to a great man, musician and friend, Franco Donatoni. The piece has been written for the mdi ensemble which will perform at the Venice Biennale in September in a program dedicated to Franco who passed away ten years ago, August 17, 2000 in Milano. I never wrote a piece dedicated to Franco as all I have been writing in the last 30 years is in some and different ways the result of what I learned studying an working with him for many years. At the same time I want to dedicate this short note to him, to remember to others who still might not know about him and his wonderful work, what a great man and wonderful sound thinker Franco Donatoni was. In 2001 I was asked to write something about him for a concert dedicated to his music. I’d like to share that text here as it is still something which well represent my thoughts, ideas and feelings for him.  il tempo dei baleni (4F)     il tempo dei baleni Radicalizzando: l’ascolto è attenzione, non è apprendimento; l’ascolto è testimonianza di quello che accade in quanto suono, non è conoscenza di quello che accade mediante il suono. Dunque: il suono è la presenza di un assoluto, la sua annunciazione ne costituisce la rivelazione, l’ascolto non è allora certamente l’atto col quale si giunge ad un apprendimento dicorsivo, bensì il momento nel quale la percezione media e congiunge la molteplicità nell’unità della conoscenza formale. L’ascolto è esperienza immediata nella quale la conoscenza coincide all’atto: l’ascolto è ascesi. (Franco Donatoni)   Mi è stato chiesto di scrivere alcune note per questa sera dedicata alle musiche di Franco Donatoni.  Nonostante la lunga frequentazione con Franco non mi ritengo tuttavia un esperto nel senso stretto del termine e non mi addentreró quindi in disquisizioni musicologiche sul significato di gesto e figura, o sulla natura dei processi trasformativi della sua musica.  La conoscenza e l’apprezzamento della sua musica è cresciuto in me fin dall’inizio attraverso il piú puro dei metodi possibili: ripetuti ascolti delle sue composizioni.  Questi ascolti mi hanno rivelato le cristalline strutture formali dei pannelli, la ricchezza organica delle trame trasformative e i legami piú o meno sotteranei che collegano sequenzialmente numerose composizioni fra loro.  Sono ancora questi ascolti meravigliose lezioni di composizione che Franco ci ha lasciato.  Non molto tempo fa a un simposio di compositori canadesi, ascoltavo le minuziose spiegazioni che venivano date per illustrare come si era voluto procedere nella strutturazione della forma e dei materiali, cosa si era voluto esprimere, quanto, perchè, etc.  Tutte queste “volontá” per giustificare o dare prospettive univoche o “ragionevoli” alla propria invenzione.  Ho pensato allora a Franco, a certa sua riluttanza a spiegare, a dare giustificazioni alla propria fantasia.  L’invenzione, l’immaginazione non si spiegano, si donano alla percezione nella loro multiformitá, si fanno ascoltare, agiscono e non sono agite.  Questo è il segreto della comunicazione musicale: essa esiste in fondo ad un livello puramente emozionale.  L’emozionalitá è immanente, l’espressione è imprescindibilmente legata all’istante, l’istante è imprescindibilmente trascendente.  Alcuni si chiederanno cosa ció abbia a che fare con la musica di Franco Donatoni.  Tutto ció ha a che fare con la sua musica in quanto nonostante la pervicace negazione di “espressione” professata da Franco, proprio la sua musica e il suo comporsi, hanno indicato e...

αυως (aurora)

my very first orchestral piece, written in 1986 Zagreb Biennale, April 1987 • Croatian Radio-Television Orchestra, Jean Perisson conductor Unfortunately, as finding orchestras committed to new works has become more and more difficult, after this piece (which btw I was lucky enough to have performed at that time) I wrote only a few  large orchestral works. A nice review published on Paris’ Le Monde: “…et surtout un Italien de vingt-sept ans, Giorgio Magnanensi, dont la partition d’un pointillisme léger aux transformations de timbre incessantes dans l’infiniment petit révèle une étonnante richesse d’écriture et produit une impression de rêve lointain, de légende intérieure, poudroyante à l’infini.” (Jacques Lonchampt, Le Monde • April 18, 1987) mp3 [Download]         1,069 total views, 1 views today Share on...

I don’t feel a need to look for absolute causes or reasons, I don’t recognise myself in hierarchical systems of thought that endlessly try to “explain” and to “give reasons”.   No musical piece here can be reduced to a formula or to a score. Simultaneity, policentricity and overlapping points of view are the characteristic elements of this work.   The sound texture is not merely the addition or subtraction of a number of isolated events, but is a more complex combination of sound events that works in a strategy of an imaginary scenography.   909 total views, 1 views today Share on...

Ohio & Deep Forbidden Lake (Neil Remix no.1 & 4)

Posted by on 5:50 am in Scores | 0 comments

Ohio & Deep Forbidden Lake (Neil Remix no.1 & 4)

from Neil Remix for voice, piano and chamber orchestra Ohio Deep forbidden lake   1. Ohio 2. A Man Needs a Maid 3. Transformer Man 4. Deep Forbidden Lake 5. Cortez the Killer 6. After the Gold Rush Music and Lyrics by Neil Young arranged by Giorgio Magnanensi The duration of the full cycle  is about 20 minutes. SCORE IN C ORCHESTRATION 2 Flutes, 2 Clarinets in Bb, 2 Oboes, 2 Bassoons, 1 French Horn, 1 Trumpet in Bb, 1 Tenor Trombone, Timpani, 2 Percussion, Vibraphone, Marimba, Glockenspiel, Bass Drum (Gran Cassa), 2 Low Cymbals,, Nipple Gong (pitched low G), high and low congas, bird call, 4 round river stones, 1st Violins (divisi), 2nd Violins (divisi), Viola (divisi), Celli (divisi), Double Bass (divisi) plus piano, Fender Rhodes, guitar and vocal soloist PROGRAM NOTES In Italy when I was young, I listened occasionally to Neil Young but never really understood very much about him. One thing though I already enjoyed in his songs at that time: a sense of harmonic color and a perfect “imperfect” voice, always hitting the right note. When I met Heather, years later in Vancouver, she was often painting listening to Neil Young’s songs. I still felt some attraction to Neil Young — for nothing else than the fact that someone I loved deeply was listening to his music — but I was still trying to grasp the real meaning of that attraction. Thanks to Heather’s repeated listening and her beautiful paintings, I have finally discovered the beauty of his work, his tender and powerful charisma, a sense of home that I have found in this wonderful country after living here for ten years. ( GM ) Neil Remix is dedicated to Heather Gatz A special thank you to Veda Hille, to all the great musicians of the CBC Radio Orchestra, Denise Ball and to Alain Trudel who is one of the few great conductors we are lucky to have had making our music. These songs are beautiful enough to speak for themselves; I tried to support their intensity and beauty with shadows, lights and colors. Thanks to Neil Young for his inspiring music and words.
