Commentary

Scambi (Listen)

The analogue tape work Scambi was created in 1957 by the Belgian composer Henri Pousseur at the Studio di Fonologia in Milan, and is an electroacoustic composition in open form. The universities of Padua (I), Aalborg (Dk) and Middlesex (GB) are collaborating in the ‘DREAM’ project (Digital Re-working of ElectroAcoustic Music). Ultimately, the project will lead to a permanent exhibit at the Music Instrument Museum in the Castello Sforzesco, Milan in 2012. ‘Scambi’ is the work chosen to demonstrate how analogue compositions can be re-appropriated using digital technology.

This version was realised in 2011 and was commissioned by Middlesex University.
