Four years after the last Piano Escape disc, Abyss is released, the new album by Katia Pesti for RadiciMusic Records.
Abyss has the world inside and translates humanity's migration paths into music; it is both memory and forgetfulness; an abysmal inner journey. It is written mainly for prepared piano and percussion, in a modern and innovative compositional style. The strings of the piano resonate like drums and echo unusual and underground percussive sounds. Each passage contains a seal of the migrant identity of the peoples; in the song "Rolling Bones" the sound bodies flow over each other on the Fior d’Acqua line and come to the surface of this record album through the voice of Elaine Trigiani. The songs: "Fingerprint" and "Blood and bones" are interpreted by Gabin Dabirè.
NOTES ON THE COLLABORATION BETWEEN KATIA PESTI AND GABIN DABIRè
Gabin Dabirè intervenes in two tracks of the new album Abyss by Katia Pesti.
Katia Pesti, prepared piano, percussion
Gabin Dabirè, vocals, percussion.
Together the two artists offer their vision of music in an archaic and modern dimension at the same time. The use of the piano prepared, together with the Balinese rejongs, the bendir and other percussion by Katia; the deep and persuasive voice of Gabin and his percussion, together create a totally original sound. The two musicians manage to cross together that subtle border between timbre and harmony, giving rise to a completely personal and out of the ordinary breath from their compositions.
NOTES OF KATIA PESTI ON HIS MUSIC
"My music is an abstract idea that I sometimes perceive as something fluid and transparent, sometimes brilliant and material but always in vibrant immutability: a translation of perception.
Most of the music is composed with piano and percussion; this allowed me, over time, to acquire a personal instrumental technique, such as playing piano and percussion simultaneously and inventing different timbre and musical possibilities.
It is significant for me to create an executive space in which the invention in real time can become part of improvisation and generate unique, unrepeatable possibilities. I note the musical ideas by recording my improvisations as sketches, an engraved memory that I focus on when I feel the need to develop that improvised formula. "
