Stainless Staining (Single)

Stainless Staining by Lisa Moore
Released: Jul 2012
Label: Cantaloupe Music
Irish composer Donnacha Dennehy wrote all the pieces here; the title-track work is scored for piano "and soundtrack" -- in which the soundtrack is comprised of piano samples retuned "to provide a massive harmonic spectrum of 100 overtones based on a fundamental low G#." This manages to be both grave-sounding and dreamy. "Reservoir" is based on one of video artist Bill Viola's slow-motion works, and its two-part structure recalls one of the artist's diptychs. Pianist Lisa Moore's performances are authoritative -- and her taste in choosing which composers to commission remains unimpeachable.
