Product details

The sound of the Bells in Federation Square was a starting point with their soft tranquil sustained sonorities gradually dying away. Then they gradually become more agitated increasing in velocity and dynamics, sometimes to a loud clanging noise. Even though these chimes are computer-generated 'random' pieces, I attempted to write a more structured work to explore these innate characteristics of the chimes: the sustained
sound dying away, repetition of notes, the harmonics and their self-propelling force when building up to both smaller and larger crescendos. These sounds are explored within the framework of the characteristics intrinsic to the piano: the use of the damper pedal, tempered tuning, pianistic virtuosity and the very large range of pitch to exploit in the upper register.
