1993, for quadraphonic tape.
This piece is about impossible dreams. Many times and without learning from experience we build beautiful Paper Castles on Invisible Clouds, thinking yet again that dreams are reality, or maybe that they can be turned into reality with sheer will power and the wave of a magical wand. These first two sections are like twin brothers, intermingled yet separate. As for the third and last section, Electric Eyes, if you have ever felt the startling contact of electric eyes, there is no need for me to explain. If you have not, mere words will never be enough... That's my dream and the cause of a lot of Paper Castle building...
The piece was composed in the digital domain using the CLM non real time sound synthesis and processing environment running on a NeXT and the four channel spacialization was performed by a special unit generator programmed by the composer. The processed sound materials are sampled tubular bells, cowbells, cymbals, gongs, knives and screams and the synthetic sounds are rendered through quite simple additive synthesis instruments.
