Etuda - Sixth in my Series Metal Percussion music, MPm 6 -
presenting 3 works, one for Piano and 2 for Vibraphone. A good subtitle for the Album would have been 'Maximising the minimal'.
Rh 223 Klavierstuck no. 4.
‘Klavierstuck’ [specifically after Stockhausen] is an investigation into a Compositionally narrow pianistic pallet, just a few selected notes, to build the entire piece with, augmented by a long sustaining echo, pilling up notes, such that a richness emerges.
Rh 227 Sonataphon for Vibraphone in two movements
Also giving an enormously rich instrument a very restricted cellular pallet, but with the compositional freedom of endless repetitions, modifications and epicycles. Maximising the minimal.
Rh 228 Etuda
Derived from the word Etude or Study. A charming little piece that sort of insisted on itself after I’d finished, Sonataphon, that fits and frets its short way ‘home’. Etude is also the name Joanna Leah Geldard, Choreographer, Artist [then also Dancer] and I gave to our collaboration, 'Etuda' resulting in the 2 Etuda albums.
This Work, Rh 228, is dedecated to the excelent Czech Composer Filip Violista Holacký.
