Somewhere between Alex- ander Rodchenko, Jackson Pollock and Charles Ives: Marino Formenti's piano studies based on an instal- lation by Florian Pumhösl as a listening experience! The brilliant Italian pianist has placed compositions by Charles Ives (»Thoreau« from the Concord Sonata, the song »Tom Sails Away«, and »Study 11«) under his magnifying glass and studied them, has taken them apart, searched them for resonances, assonances and silences, and confronted the results with Ives’ own methods.
The 29 Night Studies assembled on Marino Formenti’s latest album have been created for the installation »Expressive Rhythm« by Florian Pumhösl. (»6 7 8«, 4 March – 29 May 2011, Museum Moderner Kunst Stiftung Ludwig Wien). »From the beginning, the musical and visual analysis proceeded in a parallel fashion, in the sense that two kinds of insights were drawn from the same material.« (Florian Pumhösl)
