Douches Dames
3"CDR, (21:32 min)

³Douches Dames was part of an ancient indoor swimming pool in
Forest/Brussels. Today this elegant Art Nouveau building hosts the eclectic
art laboratory Bains::Connective. The music, originally intended as a sound
installation, is an amalgam made of field recordings from inside the
building, antique heptatonic scales and synthetically produced sounds spread
out painstakingly in the first movement, infinitely transposed downwards in
the second (Shepard Tones) and finally hidden inside a shady atmosphere in
the third, where another stimulating motif is aperiodically interrupted by
sudden violent curves. In addition Gunter Adler has compiled a jumbled array
of electroacoustic samples forming a zigzagged rather than streamlined path
through his archives. During the roaring times, after the melting of the
polar caps had begun, visual artist Isabelle Rouquette showed works on this
theme from a diversity of sources and engraved them into the trapezoidal
patterned floor of the pool. On the day of the opening the interior was
illuminated by flowing zebra skin light projections while the music was
presented in a sort of live performance, a soundtrack accompanied by a
sweeping improvisation on a synthesizer and twiddling with delay effects. It
has an opulent and festive character and is at home in both ancient and
modern contexts.³
