Dreamlike Shudder in an Airstream Part 1: for a crumpled woman
- Stephan Dunkelman
- Year of composition: 2000
- Duration: 13:52
- Instrumentation: 8-channel fixed medium
How can natural energy impart the dynamic of the unreal to the real, and of the real to the unreal? What are the points of contact that make free-flow between the two possible? These are some of the questions that this piece raises.
[English translation: Tom Carter]
Dreamlike Shudder in an Airstream Part 1 was realized, with support from the Communauté française de Belgique, at the composer’s studio in 2000 and premiered in March 2000 during a concert produced by ARTeM (Art, recherche, technologie et musique [Art, Research, Technology, and Music]). I would like to thank Charo, Axel and Wim for the part they played in the creation of the work. Dreamlike Shudder in an Airstream Part 1 received a jointly awarded Public’s Prize at the Biennial Acousmatic Composition Competition, Métamorphoses 2000 (Brussels, Belgium) and was recorded in 2000 on the disc Métamorphoses 2000, Musiques & Recherches (MR 2000).
