Paramnesia (15:04)

Cover of ICMC 2010

From ICMC 2010

Paramnesia is a condition that causes confusion between reality and fantasy, resulting in distorted memory. Patients fabricate imaginary events to compensate for loss of memory, and they also experience déjà vu.

The piece consists of two connected movements (‘Promenade’ and ‘Repose’) that represent daytime and night respectively. It explores decomposition and recomposition of reality, worlds that spring from the sound of a car or from a bird call. In Paramnesia there is no story unfolding apart from the distinction between day and night and a narrative of musical relationships forming out of a collection of events, which are taken out of their original context and re-assembled. The first movement is based on a recording made in the promenade of Alghero in Sardinia, and it was commissioned by the research unit CRiSAP.

Paramnesia was shortlisted at the Concours Internationaux 2009 in Bourges, France, and was selected for the SAW electroacoustic symposium in Cardiff, ICMC 2010 in New York, Festival Futura 2011 in Crest, France, the WFAE 2011 International Conference on Acoustic Ecology in Corfu, and the EMUFest 2011 international electroacoustic music festival in Rome. The composition is included in the ICMC2010 CD, published by the International Computer Music Association.
