VANESSA WAGNER | Inland (Infiné)
Inland is the pianist’s continuation of the exploration of the minimalist composers register to complete the solo continuum of Statea released in 2016 with the Mexican producer Murcof.
The album highlights a set of pieces, mostly rare or unavailable to date (Moondog, Nico Muhly, William Susman, Bryce Dessner, Gavin Bryars…) and some other well known (Philip Glass, Wim Mertens, Michael Nyman) that Vanessa Wagner performs with her classic pianist background and velvet sound.
Ones enters Inland as if exploring an inner landscape, roaming freely through a gently throbbing natural world, in which each note is a step and every sound forms a path. The title of this new album by Vanessa Wagner refers to John Cage‘s Imaginary Landscape (1939), one of the first works to use electronic devices.
