MUSIC BY TRISTAN MURAIL
The Winter Fragments CD was born after Aeon founder Damien Pousset heard Argento perform in New York at the 2003 Sounds French Festival. Three of the tracks, Winter Fragments, Feuilles à travers les cloches, and Ethers, were recorded at a state-of-the-art recording studio at Istanbul Technical University. Le Lac was recorded in New York in 2004, after Argento gave the U.S. premiere in performance.
Winner of the Record Geijutsu 2010 Record Academy Award
All five works on the CD were edited, mixed, and mastered at Tristan Murail's home in upstate New York by the composer himself, Argento artistic director and composer Michel Galante, and Argento electronics specialist and composer Michael Klingbeil. Created by top-ranking artists in the field of contemporary music, this recording explores the relationship of sound to natural environments, the idea of tonal and musical color, and the evolution of sound over time.
