Alejandro Albornoz – Fluctuaciones 3: Live Electronics

“Fluctuaciones 3: Live Electronics”

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.

“Fluctuaciones 3: Live Electronics“, contains just the material that belongs in this very distinct genre, and includes 3 live improvisations (2009, 2011 and 2014). Although at first listening the materials are clearly close to the sonorities of acousmatic works in general, the treatment, especially their articulation over time, is of a different nature, due to the necessity and challenge involved in reproducing, generating and processing sound materials in real time.

The three pieces were created with laptop and synthesizers. I also consider these works to be of some value, although largely as a historical attraction in my career and they are intended to record the interest I have for this technique and aesthetics.
