Time Stopped and Snow Fell (2015)
for Magnetic Resonator Piano
This work is one of the first Etudes to be written for Dr. Andrew McPherson's Magnetic Resonator Piano (MRP). I have had the fortune of being able to closely study the MRP at first hand, learning about its extensive capabilities that widen the timbral possibilities of the acoustic Piano. Rather unlike most of my creative output, this work is not concerned with structural influences and limitations. Instead it is a loose transcription of an improvisation I repeatedly performed and adapted whilst trying to perfect the physical touch that activates some of its sonic functions.
