Fluxus musician Philip Corner uses French Baroque composer Francois Couperin's "Les Barricades Misterieuses" as the starting point for his piano improvisations, here presenting two unique perspectives on the piece, the 1st from 1992 and the 2nd from 2004.

Corner, Philip: Through Two More-Than-Mysterious Barricades (Improvizations After Francois Couperin) (Roaratorio)

Label: Roaratorio    
Released in: USA    


"Les Barricades Mistérieuses, the harpsichord gem by French Baroque composer François Couperin, has been a long-running source of exploration for Fluxus musician Philip Corner, who for years has used it as a jumping-off point for piano improvisations. Through Two More-Than-Mysterious Barricades comprises two very different takes on the same piece. The first dates from 1992, in collaboration with dancer Paulette Sears (who provides the 'singings and screamings' of the album's subtitle); it moves from a frenzy of abstraction to a more meditative take on Couperin's composition, with diversions and tributaries along the way. The second, from 2004, is a rougher beast: recorded with wildly over-saturated levels, the tape machine itself becomes a participant in the performance, with its heavy distortion bringing out storm-clouds of overtones from Corner's piano."-Roaratorio
