Listening Diary

François Couture, Monsieur Délire, June 19, 2013

First album from Elizabeth Hoffman on empreintes DIGITAL, on CD (the label seems to have dropped the DVD-A format — its four latest releases are on CD). Six acousmatic works realized between 2000 and 2011. Themes and sound materials are simple (resonances, water, birdsongs) and less simple (densities, movements). Elegant, rich compositions, but there is something lacking in the matter of narrative or drama.
