Eight artificial pieces in memoriam Pierre Barbaud

AJ080 Eight artificial pieces in memoriam Pierre Barbaud LP, modern-classical/experimental, 2018 1Requiem for a french algorithmic composer 00:00 2 Fandango cybernétique 06:17 3 Suite n°1 11:08 4 Don d’organ 18:18 5 Suite n°2 21:34 6 Piano-Biniou 28:04 7 Monsieur de Barbaud 31:20 8 Requiem for Pierre B. 34:47 This album is an amused tribute to Pierre Barbaud, one of the inventors of computer music (then called algorithmic music, or artificial music), a solitary and somewhat misanthropic composer, whose approach, humor and erudition have always fascinated me. One of Barbaud’s goals was to completely rely on a program to write music. The composer’s job was only to select in this production what was worth it, and what was going to the bin. Xenakis (Barbaud’s great rival) will have the same vision when he describes the composer as the captain of a spaceship navigating in the infinite universe of sounds. Requiem for a french algorithmic composer: the computer has fully calculated all arrangements, I have only provided  the theme. Fandango cybernétique: Max improvises (with some instructions from me) a long atonal song for string ensemble. Suite n°1: the computer wrote everything, theme, variations and arrangement, without my intervention. Don d’organ (for organ): theme by me, arrangement by computer. Suite n°2: the computer wrote everything, theme, variations and arrangement, without my intervention. Piano-biniou: the Max software improvises (with some instructions from me) an atonal piece for piano. Monsieur de Barbaud: neo-baroque piece for harpsichord, me theme, computer arrangement. Requiem for Pierre B.: cover of the first track, this time for string orchestra, and it’s a hit! Version originale: Cet album est un hommage...
