Program Notes

Études aux objets virtuels (Etudes for Virtual Objects) is a musical composition for fixed media in five movements composed entirely of synthetic sounds. Thus, in spite of how virtually realistic many of the sounds may seem, it should be noted that everything in the piece was completely generated/synthesized by the computer using IRCAM’s Modalys software, without recourse to recording/sampling technology. Although each individual étude has its own set of sound sources, the five movements work together as a whole to create a single arch structure.  It exists in both multi-channel and stereo versions.
