Paolo Griffin

Supports & Surfaces

Label: Sawyer Editions

Format: CD

Genre: Compositional

Preorder: Releases June 28th 2024


Paolo Griffin is a composer and curator based in Toronto/Tkarón:to whose music has been described as placing “… the listener in a kind of sonic microgravity” (PANM360) and as “…uncompromising and thoroughly engrossing.” (LvT). Paolo’s work involves ongoing research about the sounding and perception of microtonal rational intonation (Just Intonation) combined with a rigorous, process-based approach to sonic form and structure. The work he creates explores the creation of colour/shading/densities in sound, and forms of action/interactions between processes and systemic organizations. His practice spans sound, performance, text, and improvisation and includes the creation of notated music and text/event scores. Supports & Surfaces is Griffin’s debut album and brings three pieces from 2019 and 2022. Each piece blends rich harmony and kaleidoscopic alterations to immersive sounds; immediate in their effect but engrossing in their experience, each piece draws in the listener and transforms gradually over looped and layered gestures transforming soloists into choirs and repeated gestures into landmarks across an expansive canvas.
