Esther Venrooy and Heleen Van Haegenborgh - Mock Interiors
Electronic composer Esther Venrooy and pianist Heleen Van Haegenborgh’s collaboration explores the synergy of acoustic piano with electronics and digital sound processing. Their compositions aim to draw the listener into the inner workings of the piano. Employing a battery of microphones, resonating elements and tiny inaudible mechanical sounds are captured, manipulated and magnified through electronic means, resulting in fragile textures where the boundaries between electronic and acoustic sound become blurred. Unfortunately the sleeve is vacuum sealed and hence is damaged when opened for CD audition, as is the case here.
