His Essay for string quartet was first performed in Stockholm inbut Nordheim always considered his String Quartet of as his Opus 1. The Canzona per orchestra was his international breakthrough. Inspired by Giovanni Gabrieli 's canzonethe work showcases Nordheim's historical leanings, as well as his occupation with space as a parameter of music. Nordheim's spatial concerns, coupled with his focus on death and human suffering, are brought together in what is arguably his Four Legs And Two Voices - Arne Nordheim - The Tempest (Suite From The Ballet) famous work, Epitaffio per orchestra e nastro magnetico Originally conceived for orchestra and chorus, Nordheim realised that his wish to have the whole performance space 'singing' was better achieved with the use of electronic means.

His later compositions include The TempestKlokkesongMagmathe Violin Concerto and Fonos for trombone and orchestra Arne Norheim was inspired by the neumes and the sound of the medieval bells in Kaupanger stave church in composing the work Klokkesongwhich was first performed in the church. In The Tempesta ballet based on Shakespeare 's play, electronics and orchestral sounds are again mixed, while the focus is more strongly on vocal music e.

The work marks the start of a new development phase, in The Kiss Of Dawn - HIM - The Kiss Of Dawn Nordheim proved that he could create electrophonic-sounding timbres from conventional instruments.

Throughout his career, Nordheim would receive a number of commissions which would result in such works as Greening written for Zubin Mehta and Los Angeles Symphony Orchestra; the ballet Stormen for Schwezinger Festival in Germany; the cello concerto Tenebrae for Mstislav Rostropovitch ; Aurora for vocal ensemble Electric Phoenix and the orchestral work Magma for the Concertgebouw Orchestra in Amsterdam.

Additional major works include Wirklicher Wald for soprano, cello, choir and orchestra commissioned for the centenary anniversary for the Oslo Music Conservatory and Boomerang for oboe and chamber orchestra written for the Norwegian Chamber Orchestra. Draumkvedet is a monumental stage work for orchestra, acting Riding On An Arrow - Axel Rudi Pell - Tales Of The Crown choir, soloists and dancers, and was performed 40 times in with the Broadcasting Corporation Radio Orchestra and Grex Vocalis.

Based on a medieval Norwegian poem DraumkvedetThe Dream Songthe work was composed in honor of the millennium of the city of Trondheim in Simultaneously with this gradual unveiling of the voice material, a different situation that is recurrent in Nordheim's electronic production is presented; small fragments of sound set against a large sound surface. There have been signs of this earlier in the piece, but now it is clearer and the texture is gradually intensified. This is a technique that's going to be central in a more refined form in Nordheim's next electronic work Solitaire.

This tonal sound surface centred around a G sharp and mainly dominated by octaves and fifths, gradually disappears, and slow transformations of sound fragments dominates the last two minutes of Warszawa. Sound is mingled with light Should one take the composer's statement literally, concerning that the sounding diary that make up Warszawa is written with a certain respect for its chronology, Warszawa would stop where Solitaire begins. And that is exactly what happens.

But where Warszawa consists of diary entries from the daily work in Studio Eksperymentalne, Solitaire is to a much greater extent a Four Legs And Two Voices - Arne Nordheim - The Tempest (Suite From The Ballet) of a compositional idea.

Solitaire for electronic sounds and lighting design was written for the opening of the Henie Onstad Art Centre in Norway, on 23 August The idea behind the art centre was that it should be interdisciplinary, something Nordheim also wanted to reflect through linking the composition to text and light.

Nordheim had admired Baudelaire for a long time, something he expressed in an article in the newspaper Dagbladet, already in At the same time, the different parameters of the voice were used as control mechanisms. In this way he could create a whole new linguistic world, a meta-world where music and language merged. The poem belongs to that part of the collection that at one time was banned in France because of sexual moral reasons, a ban that was not repealed until In Les Bijoux Baudelaire makes a decadent and highly erotic description of a female body only wearing jewellery.

This harem-like woman, half innocence, half temptress, is transformed in the poet's mind to a hermaphroditic hybrid, "the hips of Antiope put on a boy's body", and the poem ends with the woman's skin being soaked in blood. The second stanza reads:. When it dances and flings its lively, mocking sound. This radiant world of metal and of gems. Transports me with delight; I passionately love.

All things in which sound is mingled with The Disco Kid - The Disco Kid. Large parts of the poem contain such sonorous references.

Nordheim wanted the music to reflect the timbres in the text, and made a systematic overview of the sonorous properties. And concrete metal sounds as they are described in the poem, were exactly what he used as the starting point for Solitaire. In addition to this comes the processed female voice reading the poem. The word Solitaire is taken from the poem's sixth stanza and carries the reference to the jewellery. Solitaire is the name of the most naked diamond mounting, where all sides are open and sparkles when the light is broken.

But it can also be translated as loneliness and thus makes it open to an interpretation of loneliness and alienation, both in Baudelaire's poems and in the musical landscape.

Lit pieces of mirrors were attached to a series of small electric motors in the Tom Fogerty - Deal It Out of the Henie Onstad Art Centre at the premiere of the piece. The motors started and stopped according to a system of signals.

In this way, the glitter and the metal from the text also appeared in the lighting. The ice skating princess Sonia Henie, which was one of the founders of the museum, can represent both The Duke - Miles Davis + 19 - Miles Ahead and the glittering, decadent and glamorous jewels.

Sonorous surfaces and fragments Solitaire begins where Warszawa ends, with small fragments of sound set against a large sonorous surface. Also this time, the sonorous surface has a somewhat tonal character dominated by octaves, and is made up of harmonic partials with the fundamental C1 55 Hz. Against this large sonorous surface, small metallic fragments of sound are placed in a high register. These fragments of sound have a tonal character, and consist of a major chord centred around a C8 Hz.

These pitches are also related to the harmonic series to the pitch C, and interpreted in this way, one can say that Xanéu Nº 5 - O Teatro Mágico - Segundo Ato the sonorous surface and the fragments of sound is made up of material from two different harmonic series.

Once again, the tonal elements have a distance between each other of a minor third, but the big distance in register, combined with the harmonic aspect makes it less prominent. The upper partials in the sound surface are gradually removed to provide more space for the metallic sound fragments, for then to return again when the timbre is intensified towards the end of this part.

Illustration of the introduction to Solitaire, about one and a half minutes into the composition. Inside Out - Odyssey - Greatest Hits shows three layers: the sonic surface dominated by octaves Imetallic fragments of sound in a high register IIas well as a soft layer of sound fragments III placed in the background, creating perspective through a kind of echo effect.

The pitches are for convenience notated as tempered pitches, whereas the time stamp is accurate. This pulse is gradually fragmented and assumes an ever more organic phrasing. Eventually, fragments of human voice timbres appear with the same phrasing as the noise spectrum and Four Legs And Two Voices - Arne Nordheim - The Tempest (Suite From The Ballet) understand that the organic phrasing has been created by the voice all along.

This voice material also returns towards the end of the piece, but it is Four Legs And Two Voices - Arne Nordheim - The Tempest (Suite From The Ballet) so distinct that we can actually comprehend whole sentences or words.

The voices remain as linguistic fragments. Here we can find obvious parallels to the series of electronic works centred around language and voices that were produced in the Studio di Fonologia Musicale di Radio Milano by composers such as Berio, Maderna and Nono. Nordheim have later expressed great admiration for the voice in this piece, Cathy Four Legs And Two Voices - Arne Nordheim - The Tempest (Suite From The Ballet)and Aurora for four vocal soloists, crotales and tape, was dedicated to Berberian.

This signal path is, according to Nordheim's sound engineer Mats Claesson 24 one of Nordheim's most widely used techniques and we can hear it in the second section of Solitaire. A sound source, eg. The amplitude of sound source nr two sound IIeg. In this way, one takes the characteristics of one sound object and transfers it on to another.

There are many variations of this signal path. This section is succeeded by two parts, which also gives associations to the "wonderful world of metal and stones" in the text. Firstly one part consisting of intense sounds made up of prepared metal sounds, and then a second section where the in-harmonic, bell-like partials of metal is explored in slow transformations. The intrinsic musical substance of words It would take two years for the completion of Nordheim's next tape piece Pace peacecommissioned by Polish Radio with a world premiere in Warsaw 21 September Sonically Pace seems more well-produced than the previous two works, and it may seem as if Nordheim and the engineers in Studio Eksperymentalne had refined the studio craft during the two years that had elapsed since the last time.

The textual basis is the second article of the UN Declaration of Human Rights, the part that starts with:. Everyone is entitled to all the rights and freedoms set forth in this Declaration, without distinction of Estalacticas - Juana Molina - Halo kind, such as race, colour, sex, Four Legs And Two Voices - Arne Nordheim - The Tempest (Suite From The Ballet)religion, political or other opinion, national or social origin, property, birth or other status.

The text is read out by three different voices; a child, a woman and a man. In Solitaire the voice was taking part in the piece as a sonic element even if the listener was not able to extract semantic information from the material. In Pace, however, the voice is only present as structural material and the treatments are so extensive that we no longer hear the original voice. But since the sonic Bye-Ya - Various - Thats The Way I Feel Now - A Tribute To Thelonious Monk and phrasings of the voice are controlling the musical processes in the piece, the text is still there, albeit in a less direct and more ambiguous manner.

Here inside the text, there is an area where sound and meaning converge. Nordheim compares this abstraction with the use of text in traditional polyphonic vocal music as we find it with e. As Nordheim himself says: "Common to Eco, Solitaire and Pace is that they never would have come into existence if I would have used the telephone directory as the starting text. Nordheim was interested in the smallest constituents of language, the phonemes, and was intrigued by the idea of being able to go into the Four Legs And Two Voices - Arne Nordheim - The Tempest (Suite From The Ballet) and isolate these tiny particles that he called the "basic elements of language.

Here, language was born and inside each of these particles there was meaning, something which Nordheim himself claimed he had brought out both in Solitaire and Pace. Norwegian musicologist Kjell Skyllstad has pointed out that Nordheim's desire to give a linguistic expressivity to music may have had its roots in Greek music philosophy.

Nordheim was occupied by Greek culture, so this is not an unlikely thought. Skyllstad points to the fact that in Greek culture, ideas are not independent of language, and in the Greek verses, music and poetry was one. In the human community the word does not exist as writing, but only as a sounding words.

The word also requires a fixed structure. The Greek word had an intrinsic musical substance and the musical rhythmic structure was already established in the language.

Chiming with electronic bells Voices are thus central to Pace, and the piece begins with an intense and aggressive noisy sonorous fabric where we can glimpse the remains of filtered vowels and consonants. This is followed by a noise spectrum that is Four Legs And Two Voices - Arne Nordheim - The Tempest (Suite From The Ballet) by a voice, just as we know it from the second part of Solitaire.

A high-pitched hissing sound appears to be gliding downwards as a Shepard tone 30in an endless downward motion, and then gradually assume a bell-like timbre. The illustration shows a frequency analysis of Pace from about 1. A high-pitched hissing sound appears to be gliding as a Shepard tone in an endless downward movement. This chiming with electronic bells adapts the phrasing of the voice material through the use of a so-called filter bank. What sets the filter bank apart from the "gate" signal path in Solitaire is that it is the voice's sonorous characteristics itself, that is controlling the final result.

The language and semantics are broken down and thus the bells timbre appears. In Pace Nordheim uses a so-called filter bank. Several band pass filters, ten in this example, filters the sound at different frequencies. Sound is emitted through depending on whether the sound has energy in the respective frequency ranges or not. In this way, for instance a voice sound can activate different filters depending on various consonants and vowels.

If the frequency range of the filter is narrow enough it will in practice let through a tone instead of the filtered sound. Nordheim has, in this example from a little over three minutes into Pace, tuned the filter mainly in thirds. In this way he achieves the bell-like timbres of the piece.

The pitches are written as tempered pitches while the frequencies in Hz are exact. The illustration shows the result from the filter bank from a little over three minutes into Pace and continued for eleven seconds.

Notice how the various consonants, vowels and linguistic phrasing shape the material in organic phrasing between the 3rd, 5th, 7th and 8th second. The pitches are notated as tempered pitches while the time stamp is accurate. In the example, the filter bank is mainly tuned in thirds. Also in those sections where the filter bank is tuned in other intervals we are still talking about chords and harmonies that evoke associations with tonality and instrumental music.

This bell-like, partially tonal, sonic fabric is gradually broken down until only a few pitches are left. This is then transformed into a noise spectrum, which then is expanded into a bubbling sound surface consisting of in-harmonic, filtered grains of sound.

This surface of sound is intensified over the second half of the piece, and then suddenly cut off, just as quickly as Pace 3rd Man Theme - Herb Alpert And The Tijuana Brass* - !!Going Places!!. A continuous duration of a little more than years Prior to the premiere of Pace Nordheim had completed another electronic work, the multimedia installation Poly-Poly.
