    RADIANCE is a new work by Stephan Mathieu comprising twelve album-length pieces, each of them following the concept of stasis, the unfolding of time and sustained frequencies, deep listening, and immersive soundscapes. The sequence for the whole set is conceived as one album in twelve parts:


    I. ALAP FOR STEEL NEEDLE, RECORD AND THEORBE
    A dedication to early music pioneer and instrument maker Arnold Dolmetsch

    II. MUSIC FOR THE ANSWER
    A score by France Jobin and Stephan Mathieu for Cedrick Eymenier’s film The Answer

    III. BLACK SQUARE FOR ROBERT FLUDD
    For 78rpm records

    IV. A RAINBOW OF MOONLIGHT
    For voices and gongs

    V. FOR FRANZ WRIGHT
    For Frafisa Pro piano, tabletop zither and shortwave radio

    VI. KEPLER
    For piano and planetary movements

    VII. PROCESS
    For Renaissance strings, mechanical-acoustic gramophones and binary code

    VIII. TO HAVE ELEMENTS EXIST IN SPACE
    An interpretation of Earle Brown’s seminal graphic score December 1952*

    IX. FOR MORTON FELDMAN
    For percussion and strings*

    X. HER DARK GAZE DROWNED IN LIGHT
    A re-narration of Carl Theodor Dreyer’s Vampyr

    XI. MUSIC WITH MAGNETIC STRINGS
    For ebowed virginals. Dedicated to Alvin Lucier

    XII. PACIFIC
    For Farfisa Pro piano and gong


    *RADIANCE VIII and IX are commissions by the Earle Brown Music Foundation New York in celebration of Feldman and Brown’s 90th Birthdays

about

RADIANCE VIII: TO HAVE ELEMENTS EXIST IN SPACE

An interpretation of Earle Brown’s seminal graphic score "December 1952", commissioned by the Earle Brown Music Foundation, New York in celebration of the composer's 90th Birthday.

“… to have elements exist in space… space as an infinitude of
directions from an infinitude of points in space…” EB



In 1997 I was invited to perform December 1952 at the HFM University of Music in Saarbrücken, Germany. Mr. Brown was in attendance and told me later over dinner that my version for prepared drum kit was “the most honest and touching” performance he had heard and encouraged me to record the piece.

It took me 20 year to finally do this while my ways of creating music have changed quiet substantially in the meantime. For this rendition I worked mainly with field recordings made during my visits to New York in 1994/95 and 2003, the ARP 2600 and Roland System 700 synthesizers, an electronic drum kit and shortwave receiver. This stereo version is a dedicated mix of the original 7:2 surround files.
