SALVATORE MARTIRANO: The Salmar

SALVATORE MARTIRANO 23/08/2013 13:00

The SalMar Construction

The SalMar Construction is an amazing large music synthesis engine conceived and constructed in the early 1970's by a composer for use by a composer. These unreleased recordings were made at IRCAM in Paris in 1983. It illustrates the power that an electronic composition can achieve when the composer arrives at a true synergy with his synthesizer.

PUNK IN BRUSSELS 1977-79 CD/LP

An incredible energy took over Brussels at the onset of the Eighties. It is a strange and rare feeling when you tell yourself that something is happening. And it always happens through an accumulation of very small facts. Then, suddenly, it is there. This collection basically attempts to capture this emerging will. But before that, there was punk rock.

FRANÇOIS BAYLE 2ND EDITION BLACK VINYL

The complete version, as premiered in 1982, of one of the François Bayle's masterpieces. Available as black vinyl LP and CD.
"...my purpose was always the same: to compose with only 'images-de-sons' (sound images); to show how, through pure listening in an acousmatic situation, these sound images move like butterflies through audible space and project a colored twinkling on the listener. Out of frame, this is a world proved by itself... Les couleurs de la nuit was created for "tapes and computer". François Bayle
