About La face cachée - go to empreintes DIGITALes -
by David Berezan |imed_0896-0001|
Of all the things I have learned about my own music, the notions of revealing and discovery seem the most essential. There are two sides of myself at work here, in co-operation, and sometimes in conflict, in the creation of the pieces presented on this disc.
On the one hand, I search for sound sources that are sonically appealing, and that I connect with on a personal and tangible level, in their real world and everyday setting. On the other hand, through processes of transformation, reconstruction and imagination, I create and reveal hidden spaces, characters, and substance from those sources. Within, underneath, and behind the sound objects and concepts, there are often unexpected sound worlds in terms of detail, colour, and dynamic.
For me, this multi-faceted aural-vision that twists, turns, and opens into itself is the magic of the art form. It is also through this process of discovering “the hidden side” (La face cachée) that I discover as much about myself.
I want to thank Jonty Harrison, David Eagle, Gordon Nicholson, Jamie Philp, Ricardo Climent, Alexis Guneratne, Howie Thomson, Jean-François Denis, Dominique Bassal, Tamagawa University (Tokyo, Japan), and Francis Dhomont.
This disc and its music is dedicated to my parents: Jennie and Victor Berezan.
