This work has been composed 2 times, because a first version of it went completely cancelled out due to something like a digital crash. The second version thus takes on where the first one disappeared and from most of what was thought of and decided about it during the first 4 months of work. Then it developed it into a perhaps more complex texture, yet still following the same principle of timbral and morphologenetical sieve and enhancement of peculiar traits of the original field-recordings. The final result is a slow evolution of a sonic galaxy revolving around a limited sound material array, yet never making use of the same local structures and morphologies.

Giancarlo Toniutti

Born in Udine (Italy) 21. 3. 1963.
Started working with sound in late 1977, with electroacoustic improvisation, then into electroacoustic research and composition since 1980 (including 1982-85 “electronic music” at the Conservatory of Venice with Alvise Vidolin). Published several works since then, from the early cassette tapes to several Lp’s and cd’s. He researches the accidental nature of acoustic systems/sources and their morphogenetic articulation. He’s also into anthropology, linguistic, morphology, acoustics, and anything else could help understanding reality’s semantics.
