“Memorias” (“Memories”) was composed in 1992 by Ricardo Dal Farra at the “Center for Computer Research in Music and Acoustics” of Stanford University (USA), thanks to an invitation from that institution and a grant from the Rockefeller Foundation.
This piece was produced using the “Common Music” language, and the real time sound generation and processing capabilities of a NeXT computer. Sound synthesis techniques used were FM and physical models of plucked strings.
A chain of events, sometimes shocking us, sometimes touching us, sometimes knocking us over and over again, and even sometimes almost looking unrelated, were giving shape to these partial “Memories”.
“Memorias” was premiered in Buenos Aires, Argentina, at the “VIII National Week of Electroacoustic Music”, and was prizewinner at the “National Rostrum of Composers” of Argentina in 1993.
