Descriptions, Reviews, &c.

"Between 1984 and 1989, my acousmatic work was focused on processing and merging the four fundamental substances. Each "element" gradually became articulated with the others, thus crystallizing my subjective perception of their materiality. Over the years, helped by the enthusiasm of a Greek friend who propelled me into the Socratic universe, what started out as an exploratory path has become a circular, spherical unity, in which each occurrence simultaneously belongs to one of the four substances as well as the whole. These four sections, of uneven durations, embody the different resonances of each "element" upon my imagination. The movements are ordered compositionally and range from the intangibility of the air to the extreme density of the earth. In Eterea, the dual nature of air, a space for the dissemination of sounds and an environment for mobile masses, shaped the work and the development of its forms. Whether it be the vast expanse of particles as organised movement or the displacement of sources in our three-dimensional perception, ethereal air fills the space and drives the immaterial motions and gestures. Aquatica locates the materiality of water in relation to its amazing extremes: from the drop to the ocean, an extensive journey unfolds through the various phases of the reinvented liquid. Still waters, deadly waters, raging waters follow one another, leading to the aerial fusion of a primordial equilibrium eventually retrieved. Then comes Focolaria and the unsteady fires, the elusive and wild will-o'-the-wisps that open and adorn the gates leading to the depths of the earth. The land of Terra is devoid of atmosphere, a land of matters before the advent of life. The sounds of the original matter merge and evolve into purer forms. The motions trigger progressions towards new equilibriums of forces, the ultimate fusion, the very last attempt, needed for the emergence of life. The sphere is now complete, the world ready for creation..."-Daniel Teruggi


Artist Biographies

"An Italian composer born in 1952 in La Plata (Argentina).

Daniel Teruggi studied the piano and composition at the Conservatory de la Plata as well as physics at the University. Arriving in France in 1977 he completed his training in the electroacoustic composition and musical research class of the Paris Conservatory. In 1981 he joined Ina-GRM (Institut National de l'Audiovisuel - Groupe de Recherches Musicales) where he became head of musical production as well as of development and of Syter pedagogy, a system of real-time digital transformation and synthesis. He subsequently became director of the GRM (1997-2017) and director for research and experimentation at Ina (2001-2016). He currently works for the preservation of the digital collections, of works on support and of electroacoustic music, and for this he received the 'SMPTE Archival Technology Medal Award' in 2016.

With a passion for the transformation of tone-colour, Teruggi sculpts sound matter with a very particular attention to space and musical perception. Aiming at the concert yet also the stage, cinema and dance, he composes music on support, music for small ensembles and support, as well as music for instruments with real-time treatment. His works include: Eterea for tape, first performed at Radio France (1984); Xatys for saxophones and real time treatment, first performed by Daniel Kientzy in Berlin (1988); Syrcus for percussion and real-time treatment, first performed by Florent Jodelet and Daniel Teruggi in Paris (1992); Spaces of mind for support (2004); Parole perdue, acousmatic drama premiered at the Festival of Radio France and Montpellier Languedoc-Roussillon (2009); Remembering, an acousmatic work premiered in Paris (2017); Nova puppis for support (2020).

Holding a doctorate in art and technology from the University of Paris VIII, Daniel Teruggi has taught working on sound associated with the visual arts at the University of Paris I, as well as the analysis of electroacoustic music at the University Paris-Sorbonne."
