"Burnt Friedman was on a journey through Australia and New Zealand, when his Melbourne-based friend , field recordist and composer David Franzke passed him an audio document by Domenico De Clario. The 50-minute excerpt came from a several-hour-long piano concert in which De Clario, his eyes bound, had played a grand piano on a passenger boat sailing through the night down the Yarra River in Melbourne. Now to all intents and purposes blind , De Clario seems to become a medium, as it were, whose slender-boned appendages moved the keys. The gently textured piano sound drifts into an increasingly meditative state. De Clario, born 1947 in Trieste, Italy recently took up an appointment as Head of the School of Visual Arts in Perth, Western Australia. Over the past few years, he has staged a number of 'blind' piano concerts in such venues as a skyscraper roof in Bangkok or a stairwell of a building in Salvador, Brazil. All the events were scheduled to coincide with the full moon or summer or winter solstices. The present recording was made in Shaker Village, Maine, USA in June 1996, and presents a compilation of the finest moments in a performance that lasted some 30 days."
