Trevor Wishart - Globalalia/Imago

Trevor wishart - Globalalia/ImagoA re-issue of Globalalia which explores human speech and the syllables common to all, and Imago, which is constructed entirely out of the sound of 2 whiskey glasses being clinked together. Classic Wishart at his best!

Wishart writes: "In Globalalia, I wanted to use human speech, but focus on what we hold in common as human beings. Although the world’s languages contain many millions of words, these are constructed from a much smaller set of sounds, the syllables. I wrote to several friends asking them to collect voices from their local radio stations, and also recorded voices from TV stations via satellite dish, assembling sounds from 134 voices in 26 different languages. I then edited these into their syllables, ending with more than 8300 sources."

Francis Dhomont - Etudes Pour Kafka

Francis Dhomont - Etudes Pour KafkaA new release from Francis Dhomont, who in the opinion of many is the greatest living composer of electroacoustic music. This CD contains 3 studies which were the seeds from which many of his other works grew. Behind major works of the scope of … mourir un peu, Sous le regard d’un soleil noir, and Forêt profonde, in these studies Dhomont experiments with the themes, tries out sound materials, and unveils glimpses of the final work. Dhomont at his best!

Denis Smalley - Sources - Scénes

Denis Smalley - Sources - ScénesrOne of our most popular titles is back in stock.

SAN (Sonic Arts Network)


Sonic Arts Network is an events, education and information resource with members worldwide. They aim to raise awareness and innovate new approaches to sonic art by providing information and opportunity across the UK.

Founded as the Electroacoustic Music Association in 1979 their aesthetic principles are tied to those of a medium with an experimental approach to sound and technology. Developments within and around electroacoustic music have led this organisation to broaden its network and to engage with a plurality of disciplines. SAN remains unique in the diversity of its activities, both at home in the UK and elsewhere in the world.

Their role as a network, providing information and opportunity on UK sonic art to a world-wide community of members, connects individuals and institutions across aesthetic and geographic borders; our work in education has, since the 1980s, remained at the cutting edge of artistic and strategic creativity; and our support for new work through commissions, research and events has encouraged new developments in sonic art and helped pave the way for the current frenzy of activity in sound work.

If you are interested in experimental approaches to sound and the ways in which new technology is transforming the nature and practice of music you might wish to join SAN.

SPNM (Society for the Promotion of New Music)


From contemporary, jazz, classical and popular music to that written for film, dance and other creative media, spnm is one of the main advocates of new music in Britain today.

spnm was founded in 1943 and continues to fulfil and build upon the brief that spurred its existence: to promote and advance the education of the public by encouraging the understanding, appreciation and development of music composed by living musicians born or resident in the UK, and of music generally as expressed in any other medium or form.

spnm achieves this through its eclectic annual programme of concerts, events, workshops and collaborations and through its two publications new notes and Beat Magazine. Guest artistic directors add their own special flavour: Steve Martland for 2000/2001 and Nigel Osborne for 2001/2002.

Through its award-winning work with composers of all ages, spnm generates an interest in the new. Work is brought to the public ear through partnership, dialogue and interaction with performers and audiences. Through this process the mystery which has surrounded the composition of new music is dispelled.

There are no boundaries. spnm will continue to develop this forum of inspiration and support for audiences, performers, composers and other creative artists over the next fifty years and beyond.

Professor of electroacoustic composition at conservatories in Liège, Brussels and Mons. Spatialization of acousmatic music on tape, performing numerous concerts in Belgium and internationally. At sixteen, she discovered the music of words (in the poetry of René Char and Saint-John Perse) and the same efforts to give life color and meaning that she finds in the music of sounds. Several of her works represent different stages of research into the various methods of weaving together text and music offered by electroacoustics today.
