Notes on this piece
Shadow of bells
for piano and electronics
year: 2015
duration: 23:00 min.
studio: Harvard University
dedicated to Amnon Wolman
first performance: February 05, 2015 by Paavali Jumppanen , Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum Boston


In the summer 2014, I spent three months in Japan to study aspects of traditional and contemporary culture, life and ritual. I visited countless temples, listened to their bells and wandered the gardens - all of them breathing with a particular rhythm. 
The influence on my sense of time was incredibly fascinating.
Shadow of Bells for piano and electronics brings those memories back into my musical world but I'm not trying to replicate any existing structure or particular musical source. The electronics act as a shadow to the piano and provide an acoustic space around the instrument.
The 20-minutes composition is a meandering walk through imaginary landscapes of quietness and resonance. The quick shifts between fluid, crystalline, singing passages, sparse lines and large chords depict the sonic interplay of a society with many contrasts.
The sense of slowness has occupied many of my recent works. This new composition is again an invitation to step outof our fast-paced activities and to discover small elements and their variations through time.
