Jose Augusto Mannis Mosaico cruzado (Eng)
Jose Augusto Mannis (1958, Brazil) His repertoire covers a variety of musical genres and styles: electroacoustic, instrumental, music for video, theatre, radio art, and multi-media installations. His music is characterized by one over-riding factor: sound and musical gesture are essential concerns. As a performer of electroacoustic music, he has worked with Ensemble LíItineraire (France), Ensemble Antidogma (Turin), Grupo CÌrculo (Madrid), Duo-Di·logos (Brazil) and INA-GRM. He is the founder and former-director (1989-2005) of the Center for Documentation of Contemporary Music (CDMC) at the University of Campinas (UNICAMP) in Brazil, where he is a professor of composition, counterpoint and fugue. His research includes music digital library, music cataloging and the development of ideal acoustical spaces for musical research and performance.
Mosaico cruzado (2008) was composed by images and rhytms, or sound pulsations emerging when listening several soundscapes in confluences and interaction. Besides a reverb in the 1th part and a little time stretch on 2 archives to adjust rythms, there is no effects in the sounds.
