"Remixe Sa Dixième Symphonie" PHILIPS (FRANCE)
"'In 1979 I composed a symphony titled: "10th Symphony of Beethoven".
On the basis of the Beethoven-symphony durations I ended to the my way,
by a destructuration of the 9 symphonies. Not does not have a
musicologic analysis of the characteristics and constants of the
writing of Beethoven updated the trajectories, the possible links, the
connections, the bridges of a symphony has the other. By the assembly
and the mixtures I introduced times of resolution or of frustration, of
prolongation or climate, cycles, repetitions and counterpoints per
guns, finally, an approach similar has that of my works. The notes of
Beethoven became concrete sounds; I did them my way. Beethoven always
fascinated me because he invented melody-in-little-of-notes, very
strong melody, as strong as a thunder clap, as a tidal wave, as a siren
of fog. It has presented the dramatization of the sounds; in A carves
the thickness. Today the 10th Symphony remix, it is the 10th Symphony
with rhythms has me, current: a faster rhythmicity, with beats, fright
electronic, flutters dephases, mobilities of filters, additions of
frequencies, doublings of reverberation. Beethoven is amplified by
depassment his orchestra, made more dramatic, more human. Today it is
also the scenario of an imaginary film which is the frame of this "10th
Symphony remix." Remix, for me, it is to strike, with wanted dynamics,
a new radical sound speech. A new adventure meaning the current
function of the type-setter in the company.' -- Pierre Henry. A curious
addition to the Henry oeuvre, speculated by some as his personal
attempt in cashing in on all of that Modulations screen-time through
the addition of a certain 'Jackin'' (albeit a distant & foggy
'Jackin'') to the mix. Really, really strange." -- Hrvatski."
