Minimal music and its strangely fascinating suspended sound animation has long held cult status in the musical world. On this CD Fabrizio Ottaviucci offers more new innovations with Terry Riley's 'Keyboard Studies #1' and '#2'. The keyboard studies are a few pages with short musical formulas and a long 'user's guide' requiring a lot of thought and organizational energy before things can be put into practice. The pianist soon recognized that one interpreter alone couldn't realize the tricky polyphony of the keyboard studies, therefore the arranged the pieces for keyboard and tape.  An oscillating sound fabric is the result -- in dimensions creating the impression of eternity. The cd contains also Tread on the trail (15'16'')
