Music for Microtonal Prepared Piano

Out on ILK MUSIC in Summer 2022

As sound explorer my music stems from the curiosity of moving beyond the fixed pitches of western tuning and into a sound continuum of de-colonized sound possibilities. I ask questions like: can an acoustic grand piano be re-contextualized by adjusting its fixed pitches  and borrowing from multicultural microtonal musical tuning traditions? Can magnets and metallic preparations placed inside the piano evoke timbral affects from say Balinese Gamelan, Indian classical or Indigenous music making? And how can this instrument merge with spatialization, technology and post- production to create embodied experiences for audiences?
