  • Availability:

An album produced by Malcolm Goldstein, a violinist who has a close relationship with Philip Corner and Phill Niblock.As the title suggests, an improvisational performance with the scenic natural sounds of Vermont, USA.

 

The Seasons: Vermont is a soundscape of Vermont as charted through the changes of its yearly soundings. It is a composition in four parts (Summer, Autumn, Winter, Spring) for magnetic tape collage with an unspecified live instrumental / vocal ensemble. Though the Actual composing of the music was completed between 1980 and 1982, it is the realization of a ten-year composition project. Goldstein listened closely and became attuned to what was the particular sound quality of each season in Vermont. He then took the sounds that he had recorded and made a tape collage which, for him, arrived at that particular, essential quality of each season. This recording is the complete, unedited premiere perfomance that took place on Feb. 26 1983 at Real Art Ways in Hartford, CT. The booklet contains examples of the scores as well as excerpts from Goldstein's journals from 1977-1982.

This disc also includes a recording of Goldstein's Soundings for solo violin. Soundings are improvisations exploring the rich sound possibilities of the violin. Melodies of sound (timbre / texture / articulation) are created that evolved out of the interplay between the resonance of the violin and the gesture of the violinist.
