Playing with Fire CD

By Diana Blom

Regular price $25.00 Sale

  New Australian music for electroacoustics and acoustic piano

  Tamara Anna Cislowska, piano


The project, Playing with Fire, began with an interest in electroacoustics, on Ian’s part, and in live acoustic piano with CD soundbed, on Diana’s. Triggered by Diana’s exploration of digitally distorted piano, with Brendan Smyly, the project explores the productive aspects of processes of digital techno aesthetic intermediation in the composition of new musical works for electroacoustics and piano.  Composers were asked to compose a new work for electroacoustics and acoustic piano and to discuss their process with us.  And the project would not have been possible without the interest and collaboration of Australian pianist,Tamara Anna Cislowska, an explorer of contemporary Australian piano music.

While this medium has been used via tape and acoustic piano in the previous century,the 21st century offers other possibilities for electroacoustics and acoustic piano which the project aimed to explore.
