Pianist Lisa Moore completes her 3-EP series with Stainless Staining, featuring compositions by Irish composer, Donnacha Dennehy.
Commissioned by Lisa Moore with funds provided by the Arts Council of Ireland, the title track, Stainless Staining was written for piano and soundtrack. The soundtrack is made up of samples of a piano (played both normally, and “inside”) retuned to provide a massive harmonic spectrum of 100 overtones based on a fundamental low G#.
Reservoir is a work for solo piano, written in two parts — the second part reflecting upon the first — was inspired by a Bill Viola video in which a man is gradually submerged in water. Though not intended, Dennehy’s piece draws a similarity with the video; an oppositional relationship between the first and second halves of the work.
