Description:
Program note (English): The title of this composition is taken from a text (Chordis Canam: by chords I shall sing), which originally embellished Annelie de Man's harpsichord. Since she exclusively performs contemporary music, she decided to ask the Frisian painter Sies Bleeker to give the instrument a more appropriate appearance. The result struck me in such a manner, that I decided to write a composition based on this transformation. All sounds, except one, originate from the harpsichord. The intention is that the living harpsichord sound mingles with the one of the tape, in such a way that it is not always clear which of the two plays the leading part in this interaction. Chordis Canam was selected for the ISCM World Music Days in Oslo, 1990. - RODERIK DE MAN
