Antoine Hervé (piano).

Composed by Antoine Hervé


Recorded: Paris, December 2002


Rating: 88/100 (learn more)

It may sound at first like an African melody played on some kind of kalimba, but in fact Antoine Hervé plays this piece on the piano – both inside it as well as on the keyboard – while an electronic device that creates the strangest of atmospheres processes the sound. The interplay between the various repetitive voices quickly becomes fascinating, and the improvisation emerges from this maze in a very original way. More than a solo and not quite an orchestra, this may sound quite experimental, but it creates sheer beauty.
