Ernesto Diaz-Infante: Solus
Unlike the call-and-response of his recent recording with Jeff Kaiser Pith Balls And Inclined Planes (pfMENTUM), there is little tension apparent here. Besides the acoustic guitar he plays on the Kaiser disc, the sampling and voice make for an almost raucous affair (read Glenn Astarita’s review in the August reviews section).
Releasing oneself from doctrine and time is necessary for this piano exploration. Why is it that the silence after the 47-minutes of the CD ended were just as powerful as the music? I think John Cage could have answered that question, I’ll cue up the disc again.
