toccare… penumbra (2005)6:43
recorded in concert, April 8, 2005
Hopefully, the title “toccare… penumbra” does evoke a sense of adventure, because of the association with the musical form “Toccata.” Toccare means to touch or to reach; the word “penumbra” is the outer part, greyish area, of a shadow, instead of the shadow itself, which is very dark. The grey area between the electronic and live piano in this piece is supposed to be the pivotal point, resembling a mirror, where the piano tries and reach out to touch the “shadow,” so to speak and to which the electronic make references.
