Sketch of musical notations on glass

This is the compilation of Craig Harris’ computer music composition inDelicate Balance (1989), comprised of 4 movements: “Cloud to Clarity,” “Somewhere between,” “Room Talk,” and “Room Views.”

inDelicate Balance exists at the unseen, imaginary barrier, at once on all sides, and always inside and outside. It contains found sounds, live and manipulated piano sounds, and representations of sounds from the inner ear and internal world. This work offers a perspective on contemporary existence utilizing the sounds that surround us.

inDelicate Balance was realized using a combination of digital software processing and mixing techniques, and real-time sampling, processing, and mixing systems. The entire inDelicate Balance is included in the SEAMUS Concert Recording Series. Somewhere between is published on the Electro Clips CD from empreintes Digitales. Room Views appears on the premiere CD from Leonardo Music Journal. The live performance version of inDelicate Balance had its premiere at the 1993 International Symposium on Electronic Art.

inDelicate Balance is characterized by the following poetic expressions:

Cloud to Clarity

Sound as music
Sound as environment
Sound as signification
Sound as articulation

Somewhere between

Somewhere between this and that
Somewhere between here and there
Somewhere between then, now, and later

Room Talk

Sound present in the room,
the Sound of one’s Voice
the sound of Memory.

Sounds from the inner being;
Impressions from the Past and Present,
Images of the Future.

Room Views

Views into the present,
Views into the past,
and the future always becoming itself,
because of what it is,
what it was, and
what it has to be.

Unmemorable, unforgettable moments,
and exquisitely insignificant details,
like gentle ghosts, follow everywhere,
aching to be more than what was
left behind in the mist.
