Another Cascando (…that’s what counts…face in the mud…) (2007)

This is a unusual piece for piano and electronics, written for Sebastian Berweck. The electronics are based on recordings of shovelling mud and the piano part involves a variety of transcriptions.

Sebastian Berweck, piano. Recorded live on November 5, 2007 at Payne Hall, Harvard University, Cambridge, MA.

Program Note:

“Distance, no matter how close the object may be.” – Walter Benjamin

In Samuel Beckett’s Cascando, voice and music, although often simultaneous, remain worlds apart. Perhaps now it is time to do the same with music and music.
