Meditations on Present Time
This project is an open collection of duets between found sound and piano. Each field recording is less than five minutes in length. An image taken at the site where each field recording was made ties the recording to a place and to a lesser extent a time. Each duet is both a reaction to the general impression of the sounds as well as a dialog with the inherent narrative of each recording. In some cases, these narratives are nearly static. In other cases, more dramatic. The role of the piano is to react to the specific sonic elements in each short recording and expose the unique narrative found within each one.
