Max de Wardener returns to Village Green with an album of detuned acoustic piano pieces, performed by British pianist Kit Downes (ECM).
Drawing inspiration from modernist composers James Tenney, Harry Partch and La Monte Young, de Wardener’s intentions here were “to try and bend something established and monumental into something new”.
The artwork features imagery from North American artist Penelope Umbrico and is issued on CD digipack and deluxe 180g vinyl LP with gatefold sleeve, limited to an edition of 500.
Fans of Debussy, Sakamoto, gamelan, microtonal music, or even just piano will enjoy.
All music written & composed by Max de Wardener
