今回発表された3タイトル全て激ヤバです!! Erstwhile Records系列の新レーベルとして2018年誕生したElsewhereの2019年6月の発表作品。Wandelweiser派としても知られ、もはやその活動内容は凄まじい領域に踏み込んでいると言って良いアメリカンコンポーザーのMichael Pisaro。イスラエルを拠点とするピアニストShira Legmannと共に録ったピアノ&ピュアエレクトロニクスによるコンポジション[Barricades]。各トラック事に編成を変えつつ進行する"study"及び”interlude"からなる15曲からなり、変に難しさのないクリーンでしなやかなピアノサウンドと穏やかなサイントーンの絡みが聞けます。本当に美しく気持ちの良い作品です。





This album contains LA-based composer Michael Pisaro's recent composition 'Barricades,' a 63-minute piece for piano and electronics. Consisting of thirteen studies (piano pieces, some with electronics) and two electronic interludes, the piece is performed by Israel-based pianist Shira Legmann, with Pisaro on electronics.

"Barricades has a distant but decisive relationship to the keyboard music of Louis and François Couperin. The title refers to 'Les Barricades Mystérieuses' by François Couperin – and to the technique of overlapping, interlocking voices, creating a thicket or web-like texture. I have loved the music of the Couperins since college, but it was when Shira sent me some of her favorite music to play, and 'Les Barricades Mystérieuses' was among the scores, that the idea for this piece began to crystallize. The process of writing and working on the piece with Shira was one of watching the barricades, which I pictured as a network of twisted vines, unravel." (Michael Pisaro)

Legmann's clean, supple yet solid piano sounds, employing a wide dynamic range, add a sense of organic life to the composition. Her whispery nuances and mysterious atmosphere, intertwining with Pisaro's underlying sine tones, create a compelling balance between coolness and emotion, distance and closeness, and result in a tranquil yet captivating contemporary work with an echo of the French Baroque.
