L’amour outragé Henning Berg

The material used for the composition of “Amour outragé” is a recording of a fragment from Rameau’s “Platée” performed by soprano Annamaria Calciolari, and the title refers to the text of that fragment. I used granular synthesis in order to obtain a continuus morphing from textures in which pitch and timbre are undeterminate, to others in which original pitch and timbre are recognizable. This is obtained changing the duration of the grains, from very short durations to longer durations. There are two version of the piece: a quadriphonic “concert-version” and a stereophonic version for the cd.
