Music for Standard Oscillator Ensemble is a composition by Nicolas Bernier and Niels Lyhne Løkkegaard. It consists of a 24:06 minute track performed on 10 old school oscillators. For many years, Bernier has assembled a collection of oscillators that have been inspiring and guiding an important part of his work. This time, he joins forces with Niels Lyhne Løkkegaard who is working with multiplication of sound, to elaborate a piece with the help of this collection for a special performance presented in Montreal during the Suoni Del Popolo festival.

The structure of the piece is guided by a written score that both performers have to follow. Length of sections and interventions are suggested and certain values in Hertz need to be reached. However, room for improvisation can be found within these guidelines and the final result relies on the arguable randomness of human gesture and timing. This score is included in the digital download.

The official performance along with the rehearsals have been recorded but only the second rehearsal was selected for this release. The other versions are part of Archive Officielle's physical archive.

This is the first release proposed in semi-digital format.
