Piano and electronics when in the hands of these two exceptional artists can weave an astonishingly magical spell. Exceptionally beautiful is the track entitled “Lux Perpetua”; a serene and gentle landscape sculpted in subtle sounds.
The potential of piano and electronics is immense and this cd brings to our attention some of the beautiful possibilities. It also showcases the piano in “extended” mode where strings maybe stopped or “effected” in some way, or caused to sound in a different way, for example by being plucked from inside the piano. The results are often surprising! In all a world of sound is created which shows the piano in a different, often reflective light.
Philip Mead and Rob Godman have become internationally renown exponents of this genre and this recording is their first together. They came together when both were appointed to the Music Department of the University of Hertfordshire and their work has developed apace, each stimulating the other.
But this CD is not exclusively piano and…It contains purely electronic work and a rather special purely piano piece to conclude. It is a recording to relax into and to reflect upon and to be surprised by!
