Piano Album Book III

This "piano album" ought to be understood as a unified narrative wove form the divergent musics of the second and fourth pieces. That is to say, a busy, goal-directed way of writing on the one hand and a sustained, prolonging way of writing on the other where busy material is dwelled on, repeated, expanded, and turned into resonance.

These two short pieces (2 and 4) provide a collection of traits that I scatter across the other pieces to shape their forms. The first piece weighs the two textures fairly equally. The third is concerned with broad sonorities and repeated notes. The fifth piece juxtaposes and superimposes such prolonging gestures with rigid two-part counterpoint.

The five pieces of Piano Album Book III are meant to be played as a continuous piece. However, if the pieces are played individually they should be called:

1.Lydia Lunch
2.Weasel Walter
3.Dominika Michalowska
4.Yuan Liu
5.Tim Dahl

If the piano is amplified, put the microphone near the high strings.
