About this composition:

eidesis III [1971-II], for orchestra and tape, with lights [possible with two conductors]
Written spontaneously by alcides lanza, dedicated to Antonio Tauriello. The premiere performance took place during a Nutida Musik concert, with the Malmö Symphony Orchestra, February 15, 1972. The conductors were Mesias Maiguashca and alcides lanza.

eidesis III seeks a sound realization of double and triple images, as if there were superimposed transparencies getting in and out of alignment.
Eidetic: of, or pertaining to, or constituting visual imagery retained in the memory and easily reproducible with with great accuracy and great detail [from the Greek 'eidos', plus 'etikos']
Tape part realized at the McGill University EMS, sugin materials done with the Le Caine Instruments, plus pre-recorded sounds from the Columbia-Princeton EMC.
