Peter Broderick (solo)
NEW ALBUM PARTNERS (ERASED TAPES)
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.
The inspiration really came when I decided to learn to play John Cage’s In A Landscape on the piano. I listened to a recording I had over and over again, five seconds or so at a time, picking out every single note.
