… Due Giorni Dopo Ricardo Dal Farra

“… Due Giorni Dopo” was composed and produced by Ricardo Dal Farra in 1988, at the Centro di Sonologia Computazionale of Padova’s University, in Italy.

Was used the Interactive Computer Music System (developed by Graziano Tisato) to access a file with all the elementary components of the italian language (vowels, vowel to vowel transitions, consonants, consonant to vowel transitions, … ), and to convert texts written directly into the computer (through the alphanumeric keyboard) to typical speech sounds. The linear predictive coding (L.P.C.) technique was used to synthesize the vocal sounds.

With unusual texts and fine control of resynthesis parametres, four electronic “singers” were created. And a text-to-speech-to-music process was carried out. On the original four channels version, a quadraphonic system of amplification is used around the audience to distribute each one of the four artificial voices recorded onto the tape to only one of the speakers. This recording is a stereo remix with two voices placed together on each audio channel.

“… Due Giorni Dopo” was premiered at Centro Cultural Ciudad de Buenos Aires, Argentina, during November of 1988.
