Remixing Modernism

A unique experiment by Stephen Emmerson. This 2 CD presents the same repertoire but with contrasting styles of mixing and sound production, from traditional to modern.

The first "Horizontal" disc is a conventional edited piano recording. The second "Vertical" disc brings the music forward 100 years by employing a multi-track approach to the mix.

This recording setup involved various microphones placed close to the piano, on stage, and out in the hall. By switching and mixing these different perspectives the music is creatively re-interpreted through a wide range of timbral and spacial effects.


Stephen Emmerson

Since returning to Brisbane in 1987 pianist Stephen Emmerson has been a lecturer at the Queensland Conservatorium of Music and is active performing a wide range of chamber music.
