‘Résonance Métallique’ is a contemporary composition for piano and small ensemble composed by Alessio Nanni in 2012. This composition investigates the nature of the metallic side of piano, including other instruments like a bowed piano, a piano Martenot and an analog  synth.

The composition is developed around the game between the actual piano and his ‘métallique’ brother: the bowed piano that distorts the original sound identity of classical piano in something totally different. Also an old fashion instrument, almost disappeared in the contemporary music and here totally rechanneled to his natural beauty, the Piano Martenot plays an important part in the transforming process of the original sound by distorting the listener’s perception.

Recorded in Amsterdam, january 2012.

  1. I’m amazed, I have to admit. Rarely do I come across
    a blog that’s equally educative and amusing, and let me tell you, you
    have hit the nail on the head. The issue is something that too few men and women are speaking intelligently
    about. I’m very happy that I came across this in my search for something relating to this.
