** Edition of 250. Comes with 12-page pamphlet of scores and an essay by Corner ** Voice recordings from a small performance in Italy, early in 2020 -- Homages to/from George Maciunas (1931-1978). Philip Corner's piano meditative playthroughs of Couperin's The Mysterious Barricades (1717), from 1989 and 1992. These two elements (voice and piano) superimposed by Sean McCann, edited during the first month of the pandemic. Manic exaltation, distorted harmony things. Album cover is a few PC scores soaked in olive oil and held in-front of the sun through my kitchen window. Booklet features passionate writings on the Couperin piece and its meaning by Corner. Philip wrote a new reflection for this LP edition, "The Mesure of the Mystery". This album is built from the finest ingredients: beautiful piano with stomach-clenching voice stretches. Edition of 250; 12-page pamphlet of scores and an essay by Corner.
