Gormley, Gerard (2019) Odessa. [Composition]

Full text not available from this repository. (Request a copy)


Odessa embodies the idea of the past looking back on itself. It takes inspiration from 1990’s ‘glitch’ music, as in Cascone’s classic text (2000), and equally, compositional methods inspired by composers ranging from Xenakis (microsound, tape splicing) to Horacio Vaggione (granular synthesis). However, it treats these in a fundamentally old-fashioned way. Everything in the piece is constructed by hand, whether subtle acoustic manipulations, or the layering of thousands of fragments across the 10-minute work. It therefore has as much in common with the reel-to-reel experiments of the musique concrète era as it does with modern ‘noise music’.
