William Duckworth - The time curve preludes

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

William Duckworth's Well-Tempered Clavier of minimalism. Elegant studies in proportion and sonority. Each prelude grows from a single rhythmic figure, uses modal harmonies, raga-style drones, and Medieval melodic outlines, and captures a particular but relatively brief mood, whether meditative, dance-like, or song-like. Duckworth's shifting, modal patterns unfold in a specially reverberant universe created by sustaining (with weights) certain of the keyboard's lowest notes. With pace and duration perfectly controlled, the preludes progress from sweetness to pungency with an elegiac inevitability.

Performer: Neely Bruce
