This pack contains the curves of parametric automations controls. You will find them at the ProTools waveform window. I strongly recommend to study them because they are perfectly adapted to pedagogy. The technical explanations contained in this pack (plug-in and automatic controls, initial values) are very important to understand how the economy of means works in terms of acusmatic composition.
PROTOOLS MIXING WINDOW
Track 1 stereo audio (pink): Contains the stereo reduction of the work + the the audiovisual
clip of the Freeze window. Track 2/ 5 (blue), stereo, audio: Original Octophonic version of
the piece. Track 6, stereo audio (red) affected to plug-in Freeze and D-verb. This track is
the origin of octophny.
Tracks 7, 8 and 9, stereo auxiliary (green): They present track 6 in 3 different delays.
Track 10 mono Audio (clear blue), recording of 11″ of Adrianne Bedikian’s voice in its
original form. No fade-in at the beginning; this “mistake’ is going to be used further
on as an expressive element of the piece.
EL GESTO PETRIFICADO is a virtual octophony, realized on the basis of delays between four
stereo tracks (6/9) connected in chain through the bus 1-2, 3-4 and 5-6. The
composition of the work consists exclusively of a constant transformation of the plug-in
Freeze. There are no superimpositions of sound materials, making difficult the
transitions. These are done thanks to the shifts between the four tracks to which the
reverberation is added.
