about

SONDE, formerly le groupe MUD/design musical, is a group of Montreal electroacoustic composers and performers.
Their compositions were generally conceived for live performance on original sound sculptures. Through meditative improvisation, the group’s aim was to produce new music with sounds revealed by electroacoustic amplification and transformation.
This Cd is the re-edition of an LP made by Music Gallery Editions in 1978. It is (still) dedicated to the composer Mario Bertoncini who was the band main inspiration at the start.

The notes on the back of the original cover mentioned:
"Live concert improvisations. Some of the pieces are played on new sound sources designed and constructed by members of the group. Others use traditional sources in a new context. Occasional use of electronic sound modification techniques."
