Solo for Piano

Solo for Piano

Misha Dacic, piano

What do you get when you cross Morton Feldman’s obsession with consecutive minor seconds with an expressivity more along the lines of Schoenberg? Ladies and gentlemen, allow me to introduce to you John Van der Slice’s Solo for Piano. This puppy is kind of weird looking, but still very cute and playful. The music is all about intervals, and it sticks to its guns, tossing taut little riffs around different registers on the keyboard, making for one spiffy piano piece.
