Format: Audio CD
The French composer Philippe Manoury has had a long association with IRCAM, and indeed his works have displayed bold new technology developed at that institute. In the 1980s, he wrote the series of pieces "Sonus ex machina" (hear it here and here) where a human performer dialogued with a tape part, but a computer followed the performer's movements and adapted the electronic material to his or her individual style.

On this Kairos disc, "Partita I" for viola and electronics (2006) shows that score-following software hasn't evolved much; the computer can now detect the soloist's bow pressure and accelerations, but otherwise the combination of man and machine sounds little different from two decades earlier. However, Philippe Manoury has made some strides as a composer. This nine-part suite moves through some varied sonic landscapes and has an engaging form, so I'm no longer inclined to think of Manoury as an experimenter who only lays down rough electronic material that other, better composers can exploit later. The fifth movement is a fascinating dialectic between bow and pizzicato playing, and the sixth a whirlwind of activity. The final movement presents beautiful spectral harmonies and even a veiled reference to the Romantic tradition.

Christophe Desjardins was the dedicatee of this work and we can assume that he presents a reliable reading of "Partita I".
