descriptions, reviews, &c.

"I consider this project to be an aural map - a soundscape - of the extended techniques that I have developed over the course of the past decade. Using non-invasive techniques (I don't prepare the piano), I use objects as a means of eliciting sounds that play with the resonant ability of the instrument. All of the music here features acoustic piano; there has been no electronic manipulation. As well, the collection of works presented here enables the listener to hear - as much as possible - the music from the performer's perspective. I was often fascinated by the minute details of and subtle characteristics of these unconventional sounds. So often, the magic of what enthralls a performer is hidden or inaccessible to the audience. This recording is a way of allowing those sounds to be heard"-Ambiances Magnetiques
