GRISWOLD, ERIK - ALTONA SKETCHES (CD)


"Currently based in Brisbane, Australia, American born composer and pianist Erik Griswold has been a leading force in Australian contemporary composition for prepared piano for many years. Splitting his time between solo pursuits and his work with percussionist partner Vanessa Tomlinson, his compositions have been presented across the globe in the US, UK, China and other locations in Asia and Europe. Altona Sketches was conceived following a lengthy session of prepared piano improvisations delivered in support of a one-man juggling show with Australia's highly regarded contemporary circus troupe Circa. The album splits its sound palette between short and sweet excursions into music boxes and prepared toy piano and lengthier explorations of Griswolds unique prepared piano approaches." (label info)
