Philip Corner “Tenebres: Lesson&Light” (Studies in Shadow and Light), learning from the dark the grand lesson of music. The darkest sound in musici s the tone-cluster. Approximation of the even denser aggregates existent already in nature: roar of waterfall and bubbling of cascade; boom of thunder; rustle of grasses and leale; winds; and
swish of the sea… At least as close as our tuning can get. The smallest steps on our keyboard condense into compact masses of sound. One could truly say that this black hole of a fatal musical attraction will resolve all dissonances into themselves, even more completely. In full accord with those presences in the outer world we so lovingly (or
not) like to call Noise!
Daniele Lombardi “Le Son des Tènebres”, for prepared and amplified piano with live electronics. The piece starts with a simple and quite short sound cluster which develops through micro-variations into an increasing complexity. In the very dense central part the sound materials loose their context after which a process of simplification
gradually brings us back to the initial sound cluster.
Released by Emanuele Carcano for the publisher A14, very few copies of this art multiple are exclusively available for distribution through alga marghen only.
