Works by Matthew Shlomowitz and Peter Ablinger for piano and found sounds. Mark Knoop performs Shlomowitz's "Popular Contexts" for piano and sampler keyboard and selections from Ablinger's ongoing cycle "Voices and Piano." Both works deal with collected sonic objects. Shlomowitz's widely varied samples, ranging from insect noises to airline safety announcements, and the recorded speech of Ablinger's subjects force these objects into musical juxtaposition with the piano. "'Popular Contexts' and 'Voices and Piano' both confront us with just how particular the act of listening really is, of how many relationships and pieces of information there are both inside and outside of music and sound." --Adam Harper; London-based pianist and conductor Mark Knoop is known for his fearless performances and individual interpretations. He is currently Turner Sims Fellow at the University of Southampton. Matthew Shlomowitz is a composer based in London and is a lecturer at the University of Southampton. Peter Ablinger is an Austrian composer now living in Berlin.
