sound spectrum

“Territory of Oblivion” from the name of the masterpiece from Tristan Murail “Territoires de l’oubli ” – a piano recital which centers on Spectral Music and music that has focus on the inner structure of sound.

It’s a journey to rediscover the forgotten aspects of piano sound, to experience it not just as pitch, but as a natural phenomenon, as a living creature.

Like Murail has remarked of the piece that “instead of considering the piano as a mere percussion instrument (hammers hitting strings), Territoires emphasizes a different idiomatic characteristic of the instrument: a group of strings whose vibration is caused by sympathetic resonance…”
