Each of Perpetual Noise’s six movements brings exciting, yet contemplative content to any mid-level pianist willing to explore expanded harmony and left-hand endurance in a solo setting. Additionally, each movement has been composed to work as a standalone piece.
AUDIO & SCORE
FROM THE COMPOSER
Each movement has a motif in the form of an arpeggiated voice (like the foundation for a traditional nocturne), which is extended throughout the work in perpetuity. Not only does this provide an excellent structural framework upon which to compose a melody (or two), but it also makes for an excellent exercise in performance stamina for the intermediate pianist. The composer invites the performer to extract any movement from this work for performance without needing to perform the whole cycle.
