From the Canadian label Empreintes DIGITALes comes another prize-winning Montréal composer with a selection of their recent electroacoustic work. On Nano-Cosmos, Ana Dall’Ara-Majek presents five pieces all themed on the life of microbes, mites, tiny arthropods, bacteria, and crickets. As far as I can make out, there are no actual field recordings or real-life data feeding into the work, and all the works are attempts to reflect the actuality of these microscopic worlds simply using imagination and observation. I certainly like the idea that she might have given a “voice” to the mites on Diaphanous Acarina, and a platform to the bacterial underdogs on Bacillus Chorus; even tiny parasites are given their day in the sun on Pixel Springtime Promenade, making use of “granular synthesis, glitch, and micro-montage.” Not unpleasant.
