Works Là où vont les nuages… Gilles Gobeil

Là où vont les nuages…

  • Gilles Gobeil
  • Year of composition: 1990-91
  • Duration: 11:20
  • Instrumentation: ondes Martenot, interactive system and stereo fixed medium

In this piece, the ondes Martenot is linked to a MIDI converter, enabling the performer to play, in addition to her instrument, other MIDI instruments (synthesizer, sampler, and the entirety of the processing). This ’super-instrument’ gives access to a profusion of sounds — simple and complex — which surround and accompany the timbre of the ondes Martenot while remaining responsive to the nuances imparted by the performer.


Là où vont les nuages… [Where the Clouds Go…] was produced at the composer’s studio in 1990. It was presented on June 5, 1991 by Suzanne Binet-Audet, to whom this work is dedicated, during the 3rd CEC Electroacoustic Days, >>Perspectives->->, at Concordia University in Montréal. It was also presented at the 1993 International Computer Music Conference (ICMC ’93) in Tokyo (Japan).
