Notes de programme :
This work was commissioned in 1988 by Geoffrey Wright for the 2 0t h Anniversary of the Peabody Conservatory Electronic Music Studios. It was first peformed in Baltimore by the Peabody Computer Consort (1989) with the assistance of the Canada Council for the Arts. The text, Amnesia, was
commissioned under the same grant from Toronto poet and author, Tessa McWatt. Praescio is the Latin root of “prescience”.
The software for this work was a unique real-time MIDI processing system developed by the composer with the assistance of a Canada Council for the Arts, Media Arts Grant. The MIDI-LIVE system was developed by Pennycook, Ichiro Fujinaga and Rene Quesnel at McGill University and it became the basis
for the composer’s Praescio series of compositions. Part of the then unique nature of the piece was the role of pitch-tracking. MIDI notes from the flute and the soprano were captured by the software and used as part of the electroacoustic texture. The synthesizer part – originally for Yamaha DX7IIFD - can be performed on any modern keyboard synthesizer. A MAX 3.0 version of the work was performed in Montreal for the 2 5t h Anniversary of the McGill Electronic Music Studios. That performance appears on the recording, “Tornado” published by McGill Records in 2001 as part of the 30th Anniversary of the McGill IEMS (McGill 2001-01-2) with Pamela Jordan, soprano.
