The idea of exploring important 20th century electro-acoustic compositions within their historically informed performance practices, and using this as the basis for the production of a new interpretation in 5.1 surround sound, has created quite a stir. It originated at the Institute for Computer Music and Sound Technology (ICST) at the Zurich University of the Arts, and found its expression in the double SACD Les Espaces Électroacoustiques I. — This album now brings us further milestones of electro-acoustic music in appropriate and informed renditions: from Luigi Nono’s first studio work, through the production of serial electronic sounds which Gottfried Michael Koenig carried out in the WDR studio in Cologne as early as 1955, to Karlheinz Stockhausen’s piece Contacts, an early example of successful dialogue between instruments and electronics, as well as Luciano Berio’s Altra Voce, a kind of echo of the “azione musicale” Cronaca del Luogo, which premiered at the Salzburg Festival in 1999.
