At the outset, 120 candidates coming from 26 different countries. With "Métamorphoses 2006", Musiques & Recherches presents the vintage 2006 of the finalists of its biennal acousmatic composition competition.
The finalists pieces were selected by a preselection jury - Francis Dhomont, Hans Tutschku and Annette Vande Gorne - and were performed and spatialised during the XIII° International Festival "Espace du Son" (Brussels, 2006). The Festival's jury - Patrick Ascione, Jonty Harrison, Philippe Mion and Hans Tutschku - awarded the First Prize ex-aequo to "Maresia" by the Brasilian Composer Daniel Barreiro and to "Et ignis involvens" by the Portugese Composer Joao Pedro Oliveira. The Public Prize, with the support of the Commune d'Ixelles, was awarded to "A tu memoria" by the Argentinian Composer Raul Minsburg.
Listen to these pieces in the blue Métamorphoses CD, and let the ocean mist bead along your skin before returning in the waves ("Maresia"); face the mystery of the first vision of the prophet Ezechiel ("Et ignis involvens"); wake your ears up by the early morning sun ("Early morning"); come across old forgotten sounds re-ignated ("A tu memoria"); walk along the amnio made of silence to the explosion of life, ending in a dead sleep ("Eclipse"); spend suspended gazes at the wood doors scuptures at the borders of worlds ("Kotmun (A Gate of Flowers)", by the South Korean Composer Suk-Jun Kim); focus on the unexpected voices of internal sounds and a triangle ("The inner voice of Triangle" of the Taiwanese Composer Yu-Chung Tseng); and allow the time to recover its breath, its rythm, to expand, to pause, as it wishes ("[./me_slowness] by the Japanese Composer Aki Ito).
