Beatriz Ferreyra has been at the forefront of electroacoustic music composition since 1963 when she joined the Groupe de Recherches Musicales as one of Pierre Schaeffer’s research assistants. She is one of very few composers still performing who was instrumental at the beginning of Schaeffer’s theories of sound objects and reduced listening techniques. She continues to compose commissioned works and perform around the world in a career that has spanned some sixty years. More info

Side A

Huellas Entreveradas (Intertwined footprints) [ 14:40 ]
2018. Commissioned by DEGEM (German Association of Electroacoustic Music). Traces, footprints cross, disappear, hide, become fluid, faint before the maze of memory, or perhaps during a hike through an unknown landscape.

Side B

La Baballe du Chien Chien à la Mé-Mère (The Ball of the Old Lady’s Dog) [ 11:10 ]
2001. Commissioned by G.M.E.B. (Groupe de musique électroacoustique de Bourges). Dedicated to Tim, Oggi, Justine and all dogs with a grandma. What can a ball, a dog and a grand-mother do, between storm and sunshine, in the country, except play? This music is specially conceived for people who have one or more dogs of any breed, size, colour, degree of ferocity and I.Q.
Deux Dents Dehors (Two Teeth Outside) [ 4:00 ]
2007. For Bernard Parmegiani’s 80th birthday. The title is a joke that Philippe Mion made, looking at me and touching his teeth just before a performance of Bernard Parmegiani’s piece ‘Dedans Dehors’ (inside, outside). It was really very difficult for me not to laugh because in French we pronounce these two titles exactly the same.
