Gordon MONAHAN

Speaker swinging & Piano mechanics

Label: C3R Records

Format: CD

Genre: Sound Art

Out of stock

This release is the first of three discs that C3R is slated to release by Gordon Monahan, and represents his first release in fourteen years. This CD is a re-release of two of Monahan’s best-known early works: ‘Piano Mechanics’ (which won first prize at the 1984 CBC Young Composers Competition), and ‘Speaker Swinging’ (his universally acclaimed, manually-operated sound installation). Both of these remastered pieces are awe-inspiring sound experimentations, possessing a visceral quality that is often lacking in more straight-forward tonal experiments. These are beautiful and moving pieces of new music.

This disc is a three-panel digipak. The next two scheduled C3R Monahan releases will also be packaged in digipak, with all design done by Denny Martin (and his wife).
