By the Lake Festival is proud to announce the first of a series of fine and special concerts at Badehaus: Peter Broderick!
For close to a decade, Portland’s Peter Broderick has cut his own unpredictable path through the world of contemporary music. So far, his wanderings have led him from solo works into the realms of film, dance and documentary scores, as well as art installations.
Now Peter takes that unpredictability one step further. For his latest album, a series of voice and piano recordings, he experiments with chance, surrendering an entire song’s composition to the roll of dice. As he explains below in an email to Erased Tapes founder Robert Raths, it was John Cage’s tendency to remove himself from his music, to somehow automate his own process, which inspired the strange mechanics with which this record was created.
Not long after the release of Peter Broderick’s seventh solo album ‘Partners’ in August of this year, the composer closes the year with his equally exceptional ‘Grunewald’ recordings, out on December 9th 2016 via Erased Tapes.
Born in just one night inside the four walls of the discrete yet majestic Grunewald Church, situated on the outskirts of Berlin, this five-track EP is an exploration of the alluring partnership between the acoustic space and Broderick’s solo performance on piano and violin. Reflecting the grandeur of the room and the natural interaction between the instruments and their surrounding environment, ‘Grunewald’ pays homage to a very unusual space that’s become a haven for an entire generation of contemporary composers.
