ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Kenneth Newby
Chambers — Volume One, Emergence Trilogy


The compositions collected in this volume represent the culmination of a five-year process that saw the development of the Flicker Computer-Assisted Composition System and a broad set of compositions entitled Emergence Trilogy that were composed with this system. The composition system is itself composed of a set of generative processes for the creation of musical structure, a set of procedures for the rendering of compositions as expressive performances, and a number of editing and re-composition tools used to further develop and evolve the compositions heard here. Taken together these procedures, structural relationships and the myriad ways by means of which order is brought to the materials at hand, constitute a kind of personal theory of music enabling me to move into new musical territories. While much of the music heard in this collection was developed using this procedural theory, some of the pieces were developed from a single idea into their finished state by making use of only the performative and expressive capabilities of the Flicker system. Illustrative of this are the chamber works, for Kathryn and for Mingus which order both melodic and harmonic materials according to the infinity series discovered in the 1950s by Danish composer Per Norgard. The series produces a melodic structure that reproduces itself at various levels of scale and, as a consequence, results in melodic structures at once mysterious yet coherent.

admiration
The composer has definitely connected to Euterpe . His music has complex layers of delight, that open the door to other realms, . The whole album a catalyst for deep experience. Highly recommended.
