“Somatic Suspension arises from a meditative process of introspection and inward listening. 

By opening my own intimacy, this work attempts to translate various somatic experiences into the sonic plane to access a more sensitive composition. The sonic matter is generated through the exploration of gestural repetition in a continuum biofeedback. A ritual of acceptance of the immanent ranging from the negligible to the immeasurable, from the quietude to the ecstasy. 

The piano used, an electroacoustic Yamaha CP-70, is a rare instrument with a piezo pick-up system, outputs, a built-in equalizer and a tremolo effect. It’s unique sound quality invoked the overall atmosphere of the album, sustained like a winter forest covered by scattered golden leaves. 

The digital processes accompany the piano dissolving its pure sound into a mesmerizing superposition of layers and glitches. 

Intimate melodies, minimal electronic beats and teared textures merge together echoing the memory of an uncertain future.”
