Ryoan-ji (le jardin de Pierre de Kyoto)
Singularities #4. Digisleeve Singularities. 2017.

In 2016 and 2017, the label Singularities brought together in the same series works by acousmatic and experimental composers upon the initiative of Benjamin Aït-Ali and Laurent Chambert. On the fourth and last CD compilation, released in hundred copies, Denis Dufour's Ryoan-ji was selected alongside those of Jacopo Baboni, Pierre Boeswillwald, Martina Claussen and others. Composed in 2010 for the centenary of Schaeffer's birth, Ryoan-ji uses as its main material the time compression of fifteen acousmatic pieces. Thirteen come from Denis Dufour’s students at the CRR in Paris and two from Schaeffer himself. On a smooth, ordered, rotating background, he arranges these sound concretions like sonoliths crystallized by time.
