Not 33:05


Not ideas, but changing light. Not the origin, or the destination, but the journey. Not the conversation, but the look in the eyes. Not the heat of the fire, but the flicker of the flame.

Not is a gently seductive work using sampled piano by Clive Wilkinson, a quiet master of the English experimental tradition, and a prolific composer of music for contemporary dance.

Haunted by the ghost of the "sad bird" in Maurice Ravel's piano masterpiece Miroirs, Not is both an elegy and an atmosphere. Not was created using a single sample from a recording of Angela Hewitt performing 'Oiseaux tristes' from Ravel's Miroirs.

The looping of this sample against a shorter version of itself creates beautifully subtle rhythmic activity. The surface of the music is ever-changing, but its core is still, ever-poised.

Not was created using a single sample from a recording of Angela Hewitt performing ‘Oiseaux tristes’ from Maurice Ravel's Miroirs for solo piano. This recording appears on Hyperion CDA67341/2, and the sample is licensed courtesy of Hyperion Records Limited, London. (www.hyperion-records.co.uk).
