Program note

A notated record of Vivente - non vivente is not extant. The work was conceived for Evgeni Mursin's ANS synthesizer from 1957, whose sounds are produced photo-electronically. Gubaidulina describes the compositional process: "...the composers apllies black paint on a glass surface. The drawing is then exposed to light and this combination produces sound."
