This is my first post, with the GAST! I'm now a very happy and proud owner of the Steinway Pro edition. It's a fabulous instrument!
So, I decided to quite "playing" with it, and give it a real spin. The following work is part of a project, which goes to my PhD (in composition). It's a very complicated piece of contemporary piano writing, if I may so myself.
and, as always, if anyone wishes, they can have a look at the score as well:
Due to unfortunate previous circumstances, the current score, has a very ugly watermark in the middle of each page, which I hope will be enough to avoid any unpleaseant experiences...
It's a long piece, and certainly it's not exactly 'easy' listening, but I hope that it's worth the download and the listening.
A Few words on the piece
It's not nice that I can't share much about the project, but I can speak clearly about the piece. The piece is written in such a way that very few elements are repeated. There is no traditional theme, or subject, harmonies are never repeated, chords are also non repeated. Tempo alterations in almost every 5-10 bars, large gaps, lots of rests, breathing points, fermatas, adlib parts, etc all create the feeling of a slight disjoint piece.
The piece involves a technique that I have developed (no idea if it preexists me, or if someone else has done it, as well), involving 'non repeated elements'. It contains all possible chords with 4 pitches, spread at 2 octaves and no repeated intervals between them. These are the material I used, to create this piece.
The (future) goal would be to attempt and combine different performances of the same piece, with little to no trouble and no limit to the coherence of the piece.
