Music and sound art: water

Francesco Tristano, piano

Works by F. Tristano, T. Takemitsu, J. S. Bach, J. Cage and G. Frescobaldi

Francesco Tristano presents various musical visions of water with his own works and pieces by composers from the Baroque to the Avant-Garde. In some of his works, Tristano improvises using the electronic processing of water samplers, while others are based on the combination of the piano and live electronics. In a Landscape by Cage, composed during the late 1940s, is based on a limited register of the piano, while Takemitsu’s For Away evokes the music of the Balinese gamelan.
