László Dubrovay – “A² “/ Oscillations Nos. 1-3

László Dubrovay is a Hungarian composer, born in Budapest on 23 March 1943.

Laszlo Dubrovay attended the Bela Bartok Conservatory and the Academy of Music, graduating in 1966. His professors of composition were Istvan Szelenyi, Ferenc Szabo and Imre Vincze. On a scholarship of the Deutscher Akademischer Austauschdienst (DAAD),he continued his studies in West Germany between 1972 and 1974; he tookcourses in composition with Karlheinz Stockhausen and in electronic music with Hans-Ulrich Rumpert.

I found this particular album on the Nurse With Wound List – its so beautiful and some of the most satunning electronic music you will here. Check this out:

In 1975, Dubrovay was commissioned by Westdeutscher Rundfunk, Cologne, to realise the electronic composition Sogaj (Sigh) in the electronic studios of WDR. Since 1976, he has taught music theory at the Budapest Academy of Music. 1985, he spent a year in West Berlin within the framework of the Berliner Künstlerprogramm.

Laszlo Dubrovay has realised electronic and computer music in the electronic studios of WDR, the West Berlin University of Technology, in Freiburg, Stockholm, Bourges and Budapest.

There is always something delightfully weird about electronic music – even to those very familiar with its tones, buzzes and tickles. This weirdness might arrive in broad brush strokes or in tiny splashes.  Each and every piece still seems to morph through that 60’s “outer space” feel, into the deeper listening experience and complexities of a pure engagement with sound. The listeners relationship with the electronic instrument is different from the older and more traditional instruments. We whisper in hushed tones about the talents of traditional musicians, the years of experience easily identified in every draw of the bow, every pluck of the string.  But the relationship with the electronic music composer is yet to be properly defined. We are left to make our own journey through this music – pay our own respects at the end.

You can STILL grab this brilliant brilliant album on the 2008 release here.
