Product details

… out of obscurity conjures forth music from the hidden spaces between things - common notes linking large chords, interference patterns generated by polyrhythmic layering, and combinations of piano sonorities, both conventional and unconventional.
The piece unfolds as a kaleidoscopic chain of brief overlapping sections, grouped into two distinct phases. The first phase forces diverse materials together with constant swirling energy, creating maximal timbral variety within the piano's middle register. The introduction of sonorous low bass notes triggers the open spaces of the second phase, which explores contrasting qualities of resonance - both acoustic and expressive.
