Alejandro Albornoz – Fluctuaciones 2

“Fluctuaciones 2”

In addition to the publication of the album “Fluctuaciones” (“Fluctuations”) in its physical CD version (pncd11), two online albums are included that can be accessed on the Pueblo Nuevo Netlabel website, “Fluctuaciones 2” (pn113) and “Fluctuaciones 3: Live electronics” (pn114).

In regards to these albums, the time span covered is around 12 years of production alongside the pieces for the CD, several of which were revised during 2016. Although the new ones were completed in 2015, they form part of a collection of works in course, so I understand them as related.

In the case of “Fluctuaciones 2“, this includes 14 additional acousmatic works, all pieces composed between 2004 and 2012 and distinct from those included in the physical CD. This collection is irregular, there are several works of interesting execution and others that are either studies of timbre and structure or are exercises acousmatic composition. I have decided to publish this collection for a number of reasons: it is a personal gesture to close a stage as a sound creator, it allows me to recognize the constancy and seriousness with which I have approached composition in the genre and makes available to students, artists, researchers and interested public parties a corpus of work that could be of interest for analysis, study, and discussion.
