Abstract

'Filaments and Phases' is a setting of a section of Simon Perril's poem 'Sun Deck Set Cogitation'. Perril's poem is derived from two texts by Claude Lévi-Strauss (description of a sunset written in 1935 while en route from Marseilles to Brazil and another written on the 1941 voyage on which he escaped occupied France) through a process of textual erasure in which new text is created by selective scanning of an initial one. Perril's recorded reading of 'Deck One' from 'Sun Deck Set Cogitation' is subject to a similar treatment in 'concrete' sonic form, perforated and reconstituted within an immersive framework of digitally synthesised and processed sound forms. 'Filaments and Phases' was first performed at the Electroacoustic Spring 2023 Festival in Rethymno, Crete.
