"Libidio Promescuses Vagistal" (2012)



"Libidio Promescuses Vagistal" (2012) Bil Smith Composer.
A Live recording performed May 11, 2013 at Merkin Hall, NYC by members of the Juilliard Ensemble, The New York Philharmonic and Ensemble Blue.
This work is a commission from a private donor and Actavis, Inc. I thank both for making this work possible.

"Emblematic Suctusstupratio" for Orchestra (2011-2014) Bil Smith Composer.
This commission from a private sponsor was dictated by a strict adherence to a "Prescribed Multidimensional Network."
Recording:
The pertinacious intent was to create a redundancy abject diverse procedural element. In the score, there is a complexity represented through moments of extreme sonic and physical activity as well as a a high degree of timbral diversity. In consideration of the score and the performance, I wanted to portray an enormous illuminated painting, unsettled, however with an intense detail.
As I composed this work, there nearest to me was a dark haired woman with a white laboratory coat, (She stood on the foam flecked lawn on the Duke Mansion); Twelve (exactly) actors resting between takes, and a woman with a widow's empty face, the mother of someone I guessed. The last of these witnesses to my composition was a man of about thirty...naked but for his tanning trunks.
In the central development of this work, the upward lines and the blistered clusters, with an uneasy friction, push against sonic gravity to complete the gestural leaps of ambiguity.

"Remarkably comfortable with causation, he seems to be moving through some ritual process that explodes into life threatening chaos at any moment. It's tempting to talk about shamanic journeys. The absence of a prevailing stylistic orthodoxy is striking"

"Magic of the Ancient Lunar Rainbows" for 13 violins - Bil Smith Composer. The Recording and Inspiration



"Magic of the Ancient Lunar Rainbows" 
for 13 violins 

Bil Smith Composer

This recording and performance made possible by a grant from Saint-Gobain S.A.
In this piece I attempt to create a new topography in which the performers need to familiarize themselves with separating and combining, in new ways, the actions of the left and right hands.
My inspiration for this work:  
Haroldo de Campos’ ‘Galaxias’, Pino Pascali’s ‘Trap’, Mina Loy’s ‘Love Songs’ and Thomas Ruff’s ‘Substrats’ and Sebastiano Timpanaro's theories of disimprovement and contextual play borrowed from the field of literary criticism.



Haroldo de Campos’ ‘Galaxias’
