eidesis III [1971-II] alcides lanza

Written spontaneously by alcides lanza, dedicated to Antonio Tauriello.

eidesis III seeks a sound realization of double and triple images, as if there were superimposed transparencies getting in and out of alignment.

Eidetic: of, or pertaining to, or constituting visual imagery retained in the memory and easily reproducible with with great accuracy and great detail [from the Greek “eidos”, plus “etikos”].

Tape part realized at the McGill University EMS, using materials done with the Le Caine Instruments, plus pre-recorded sounds from the Columbia-Princeton EMC.
