CITY LISTENING SAPIEN DRIFT

)-(U||!cK

it’s just that it’s so utterly cruel to struggle alive
and then die with this tattoo of teethmarks that only the absence brings//
so – where do all the people go?
)-(u||!c|<

In 2014 )-(u||!c|< was awarded the Michael Kieran Harvey Scholarship for Piano. CITY LISTENING SAPIEN DRIFT marks out a 21st century suite of subterranean works for solo piano and prepared piano.

The album traverses a range of sonic interventions: from the haunting Ballad of Jamie White — tracing the arc of a teenager falling to his accidental death —, to the re-framing of a Bach prelude into a contemporary picture of Dorian Gray. The work betrays a restless mind that confesses to both intense penetrating moments of light and the phobic depths of ink black night.

And then there is a lullaby for )-(u||!c|<’s daughters cut in gentle brevity.
