[audio] Musica Elettronica Viva - Ferrara, 2002


( FLAC ! )

"Here is a recent find from dime - a superb concert from Musica Elettronica Viva in 2002. Many thanks to tricko, durian1 and Owombat for making this available, and also to htakat for the great artwork.

This music has made a strong impression on me - it unfolds in a series of tableaux, which are quite different in style, with references to several of the group's known themes, and more - at times, it could almost sound like a remix of Luigi Nono. The whole thing is held together through a strong programmatic propulsiveness - the effect is not dissimilar to reading Joyce's Ulysses.

The break about halfway through is to allow the whole piece to fit onto two CDs - if, like me, most of your music is stored on a hard drive and CDs have become more or less redundant, the two pieces can just be joined together.
