Concentric Rings

Michael Pisaro: Concentric Rings in Magnetic Levitation (2011)


For its third appearance in Darmstadt, the British ensemble Distractfold will be bringing music by the american composer Michael Pisaro (*1961). His fascinating one-hour piece Concentric Rings in Magnetic Levitation was inspired by the rings of Saturn and research into their electromagnetic properties. Pisaro places an 88-pitch »melody« at the center, surrounded by 13 concentric »rings« of sine tones, radio noise, and sounds from percussion and objects, all of which atmospherically encase this center.
