"The Greco-Polish-French composer Mathius Shadow-Sky will conduct The Istanbul New Music Ensemble at the Istanbul Central Park on March 19th at 10 pm. The amazing La Farsa Del Sonido is a concerto for 7 keyboards in several simultaneous movements and in permanently speed changing. Each keyboard plays one note at a time and has to be in perfect synchronization with all other musicians of the orchestra to create this particular sensation of constant moving speed. Each musician makes his own layer alive in his own particular life-Time, but the entire orchestra can zap as one entity at any time. La Farsa Del Sonido is a can find in a desert of 10 minutes XX-century's concentrated music within a lot of blur "souvenirs" like Musorgsky, Mahler, horror music movie, XX-century Western contemporary music, techno-rock, etc. But when you listening to La Farsa Del Sonido you don't recognize it; you pleasantly travel within your spirit. The concert at the Istanbul Central Park on March 19th at 10 pm, will give us the frozen version in 100 minutes. We will be surrounded by fresh music beyond the borders. The CD version is short simulated 12-tone version."

LA FARSA DEL SONIDO [short 11:11 12-tone version]
You will listen the orchestral music LA FARSA DEL SONIDO the 12 tone version made with an Atari in 1993.
produced in 1993 by LE CENTRE DE LA BOMBE for the ObCD: LA FARSA DEL SONIDO .# ObCD 13-94 - 11:11

+ 23 years after, a polyscalar nonoctave version recorded too [included in the album]

the score of LA FARSA DEL SONIDO MIDI file 94Ko. Today, the score of La Farsa Del Sonido has to be rewritten to fit with any possible context, all different. The score was written using the Cubase List Edit to get precise rhythm value according to the skeleton of La Farsa Del Sonido. The problem is that with scoring software like Finale or Sibelius or Cubase Score, etc. there is no an exact "translation" of rational simple value: a known duration value division from 2 to 15. Each scoring software is generating, or unnecessary too complicated writing to read, or too simple writing which is far from rhythm reality. If somebody has a solution to regenerate the score with material, from this midi file, for the orchestra, that would be welcome! e-mail to the composer
