Donnacha Dennehy Stainless Staining (2007)
Lisa Moore, piano
Cantaloupe Music CA21062
Commissioned by Lisa Moore with funds provided by the Arts Council of Ireland, Stainless Staining is for piano and soundtrack. The soundtrack is made up of samples of a piano (played both normally, and "inside") retuned to provide a massive harmonic spectrum of 100 overtones based on a fundamental low G#. This reflects an increasing recent concern of mine with a kind of pulsating, rhythmic use of the overtone series. That concern can range from a rather extreme concentration in this piece and Bulb (a piano trio where pulsing glissandos connect nodes in the harmonic series) to a more integrated approach in the large scale vocal and instrumental pieces, where that approach is used often in a looser fashion only in particular areas.
