This track was created as a development of Piano symphony for 1 note. Here one note is played on melodica, including also some percussive techniques. Before recording I created a scheme of used techniques, which you can see in youtube video.
I played Hohner piano32 melodica in this recording (AKG C-214 + Zoom H5).
Directions for playing this track: use only one note on melodica. Play anything.
In this solo piece for harp I chose an unusual style for harp: rock + experimental rhythm and atonality. When you work with harp you need to remember that harp has only 7 notes in an octave and it can be flat, normal or sharp. Sometimes I have many pedal changes in one measure, but I try to make them easier to play by putting changes of the same pedal close.
In this track I use muting a lot, because the style requires it. Especially muting in low register is difficult.
This track was created as a development of Piano symphony for 3 notes. Here three hits are used insted of notes. Before recording I created a scheme of used techniques, which you can see in youtube video.
I played djembe in this recording (AKG C-214 + Zoom H5).
Directions for playing this track: use any percussion instrument, play notes in the groups of three using any concept you can imagine.
In this track I use permutations of sequences of natural numbers, optimized for the best autocorrelation qualities. Such permutations were discovered by the group of researches lead by D. Sabaev in itace.ru project in 2015.
This avant-garde aleatoric piano symphonic cycle consists of four symphonies:
Piano symphony for three notes (playing on piano using only three notes)
Piano symphony for two notes (playing on piano using only two notes)
Piano symphony for one note (playing on piano using only one note)
Piano symphony without notes (using only percussion techniques on the piano)
Thanks a lot to Irina Kazanskaya for playing this piece live:
