"A reflection caused an action".
I am working on a solo recording project where combination of recorded speech/electronics is improvised upon playing a prepared piano.
The prepared piano is recorded first take only. Phrases revealing bad technics or microphone stands accidentally hit to the studio floor is all recorded.
Microphones is pointed as near as possible towards the piano keyboard it selves. This cause the sound of my fingertips hitting the keyboard to take important place in the musical picture.
Released from its causal consequence the actual action becomes an attraction on its own.
Heraclitus' philosophy can be captured in just two words: "panta rei", literally everything flows, meaning that everything is constantly changing, from the smallest grain of sand to the stars in the sky. Thus, every object ultimately is a figment of one's imagination. Only change itself is real, constant and eternal flux, like the continuous flow of the river which always renews itself.
In this piece I have used contrasts and transformations as leading technics
My last film score was made 1996. Working with the soundtracks for the movie Lady Lazarus marked an end for my music production for movies.
