The concert has finished
This music hovers in and out of liminal subconscious. The music stems from the curiosity of moving beyond the fixed pitches of western tuning and into a sound continuum of post-colonized sound possibilities. I ask questions like: can an acoustic grand piano be re- contextualized by adjusting its fixed pitches and borrowing from multicultural microtonal musical tuning traditions? Can magnets and metallic preparations placed inside the piano evoke timbral affects from say Balinese Gamelan or Indian classical? And how can this instrument merge with spatialization, pre-recordings and electronics to create embodied experiences for audiences?
