alcides lanza: acúfenos III (1977-I), for flute, piano and electronic sounds

Written in 1977 for the flutist Jorge Caryevschi, who did the premiére performance at IPEM, Ghent, Belgium, with the pianist Renato Maioli. [In Ghent, BRT program, Dec. 15, 1977]

The tape part of acúfenos III was made from sounds of recorded flute and electronic imitations of the same sounds. the sound sources are the quena (wooden flute from Argentina and Bolivia), the ocarina (ceramic instrument from Argentina), a three-hole flute (ceramic, from Mexico), a Pan-flute (wood, Peru), several organ pipes, dulciana , flodie, bourdon and celeste, plus a tuning pipe.

acúfenos is a spanish medical term meaning "tinnitus" (tinnitus: from the L. ringing, Fr. tinnitus or acuphene. It is the pp of "tinnire", to ring: a sensation of noise (as a ringing or roaring) that is purely subjective.

The composition intended a certain approximation to an aural-visual image, of a south american indian in thesolitude of the dry, high sierras, playing his quena, accompanied at times with "bombo" (rustic bass drum) and "charango" (small stringed instrument, made with the caparace of a porcupine type of animal).

The tape part was realized at the electronic music studio, McGill University, Montreal, and finalized at the private studio of the composer (shelan studios).
