Dario Crisman is an Italian composer and pianist. One year after Oltre, he’s back with a new solo piano full-lenght. Voyager is out now via Blue Spiral Records. His words about the new work: “This project stems from my idea to experiment new sounds and new stylistic approaches, in a moment in which I feel I can confront a wide-ranging European piano reality, where multi-faceted piano expressive forms coexist.
Setting aside the classical piano and its sounds only momentarily, I tried my hand at this work using the “felted” and “Unacorda” piano timbres, which require a different expressive technique and also a different compositional approach. The album is ideally divided into two parts: in the first one we find songs played on the Felted piano, in the second part they are played with Unacorda.”
