A tissue of quotations

A Tissue of Quotations (2009) is a celebration of the classical piano repertoire and always had in mind that each of its eight parts would be a clear and distilled expression of a particular composer's emotional soundprint.

Thus each part is based entirely on quotations from a single composer, in some cases from only a few fragments of phrases. I have combined the emotion inherent in their music with the minimalistic structures implied by sampling and other digital audio editing techniques such as cutting and pasting, pitch-shifting, breaking down, looping and fading. The result is a kind of re-packaging of the universal quality of emotion originally expressed by the source composers that represents a collaboration with history.
