Edgard Varèse et Léon Theremin. • Edgard Varèse et Léon Theremin VARESE : Libérer les sonsDe 1914à 1927, Edgar Varèse (1883-1965) émigre à New-York où il demeure très fortement marqué par les expériences et les théories des futuristes et notamment celles de Luigi Russolo et Ferruccio Busoni.

Edgard Varèse et Léon Theremin

Varèse souhaite faire de la musique avec des sons et non plus avec des no tes, tous les univers sonores ont le droit de cité dans sa musique : les bruits et les sons "purs". Il compose "Amériques" (1918-21), une pièce écrite pour des instruments traditionnels avec un goût très prononcé pour les "arrêts subits", les "intensités brusquement coupées", les percussions, la vitesse, la vitalité, où il intègre même les hurlements de la sirène des pompiers de New York. Cet aspect de son œuvre se renforce en 1931 avec "Ionisations" : première œuvre occidentale pour percussion seule, écrite pour trente-sept instruments, cette fois-ci l'intrumentarium inclut : sirène, enclume et un tambour à corde pour simuler le rugissement du lion.

I found site (a more comprehensive catalogue of Laurie's work, with annotations of many of her works). Jim's site inspired me to try my hand at annotating its meaning for me... O Superman. Introduces the 3 central actors in the ballad: force (superman), justice (judge), love (mom and dad).

Hi. Just start talking at the sound of the tone. Robotic answering machine message expresses the idea that love is gone - the receiver of the call is gone - supplanted by technology. Hello? And I said: OK. O Superman. The song topped the 1981 Village Voice Pazz & Jop singles poll.
