Appease Process is new music for acoustic piano with wind, reed, and string instruments. As a solo artist Charlie Russell has been developing the ideas in the piece for years. Utilizing the acoustic piano’s natural resonance as a constraint, the music leans into overtones and harmonics created when applying a steady hand to subtle changes. The premiere of this piece at NMASS will have accompaniment by wind, reed, and string instruments. Ricardo Acevedo will project his VHS video work Blue during the performance.
Written and performed by Charlie Russell with support by :
Marshall Lowry – flute
