ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
day music _ 1 "intervals for piano and decay"

"The first of the six “epicyclic” pieces exemplifies qualities—stasis and development in equal measure foremost among them—that one presumes will characterize the series as a whole. With pregnant pauses separating them generously from one another, piano notes of varying pitch resonate loudly while a crystalline tonal mass shimmers uninterruptedly in the background. A call-and-response pattern suggests itself in the way monotone clicks appear in conjunction with the piano, a move that creates the illusion that one is a generative response to the other. There is ongoing evolution, true, but it's of a kind that feels cyclical, as if a modest number of electro-acoustic materials are repeating themselves with ever-so-subtle variations. At first, there appears to be little narrative arc to speak of—no build-up, climax, or dénouement—and instead a steady and unwavering flow (though the interjection of vibes-like accents just past the half-way mark does come as a jolt), but a subtle change emerges near the forty-seven-minute mark when the faint glimmer of twilight tones signals a transition into an overall more subdued and fragile presentation; though the piano playing at this juncture grows a tad denser, it too begins to fade until only the smallest threads of music remain. In the past, we've described Leimer's music as time-suspending, and it hardly surprises that the Day Music concept pushes the idea to a new extreme; even the shorter version lulls the listener into a state of reverie that grows deeper the longer the material plays. Consistent with the installation-like design, Leimer conceived of the pieces as material that could be played either singly, or in layered (the same setting multiplied) or combined (multiple pieces played simultaneously) manner." -- Textura
