Luc Ferrari - Archives Génétiquement Modifiées / Société II CD 20900
"Archives Génétiquement Modifiées" (Genetically Modified Archives), a work for "memorized sounds" from 2000. This composition (subtitled: Exploitation of the Concepts 3) was the third in a series of later pieces in which Mr.Ferrari revisited aspects of his early concepts and compositional strategies to create wholly new works. The result here is a very bizarre, sensual, and beautifully-paced electroacoustic work of aural memories and (re)collections created by Mr. Ferrari utilizing sounds from his vast archive of musical activities.

"Société 2" from 1968. Subtitled "And if the piano were a body of a woman" (for 4 soloists and 16 instruments), this composition appeared opposite "Presque Rien" on the legendary Deutsche Grammophon LP. "Soci?t? 2" may be viewed as an erotically charged piece of musical theatre where the soloists "compete" for the attention of a woman (the piano). This concerto with its gestures and a fantastic kaleidoscope of styles and color shows the extravagant qualities of the piano in its "harmony, imagination, and brutality".

Packaged in a full color digipak with 20 page bilingual booklet featuring Mr. Ferrari's early artwork, notations, and programme notes along with an extensive commentary by Jim O'Rourke and Jay Sanders.
