Erik Griswold - Pale Yellow Frontier

Erik Griswold - Pale Yellow Frontier
Eclectic composer-pianist Erik Griswold fuses experimental, jazz and world music traditions to create works of striking originality. Specializing in prepared piano, percussion and toy instruments, he has created a musical universe all his own that is "sincere" (neural.it), "playful" (igloo magazine), "colourful and refreshingly unpretentious" (Paris Transatlantic).

Since the late 1980s he has composed solo and chamber works for many adventurous performers in the U.S. and Australia, such as Margaret Leng Tan, Steven Schick, The Montreal-New York Quartet, Decibel, The Camerata of St. John's, Ensemble Offspring, the Soundstream Collective, The Australian Voices, Either/Or Ensemble, Southern Cross Soloists, Los Angeles Percussion Quartet, Early Warning System, red fish blue fish, Speak Percussion, and many others. In 2014 he is concentrating on a new work for the La Jolla Symphony, "Jeux a la fin du monde / Games at the end of the world," expanding on ideas and musical textures from Debussy's "Jeux" and Lutoslawski's "Jeux Venitiens."

About this track...

Pain Avoidance Machine - you are invited inside the piano, exposed to the instruments raw materiality. Griswold offers an invitation to explore the prepared piano’s sound world in detail that reveals an entirely new dimension. Mechanistic motifs and rhythms are layered one atop another to create fragile musical collages.
