…As Viewed From The Shore (Hommage a Luigi Nono)

for Piano and live electronics (MaxMSP, 4ch)

dur: 7′

premiered at the Amarylis Fleming Concert Hall, as part of ‘from the Soundhouse’ concert series. Daniel Chappell (pno), Michel Oliva (electronics).

This was composed in response to the Luigi Nono’s ‘…sofferte onde serene…’ (serene waves endured), for solo piano and magnetic tape, a work which I have a personal history with and have previously performed myself. Harmonic, textural, and motivic fragments from Nono’s piece can be found scattered throughout, in addition to the conceptual relationship between soloist and electronics which is also preserved (obscuring the distinction between the piano and the processed sound).
