Matthew Pollock- Sit And Be Well [treetrunk 382]

Sit, and be well is a collection of pieces that explore possibilities the piano offers in a variety of ways. It was my intention to marry these possibilities—traditional piano performance (as in, fingers on keys), extended techniques, and the rich palette of harmonic spectra that the piano has to offer—with the idea of specific spaces, all through a scratchy lens of digital signal processing. Each track references distinct natural locations scattered across the Pacific Northwest, although to what extent each piece accurately describes each particular location is anyone’s guess (mine included). More important to me than painting an image of these places was suggesting a physical space for the listener to explore.
