This debut solo release from Xenia Pestova follows on the heels of her piano duo recordings of seminal works by Stockhausen and Cage for Naxos Records, and brings together six carefully-crafted new works for keyboard instruments and electronics in an intricate and seductive blend of unusual sonorities and shimmering hues. Far from being “effects” or tools for processing instrumental sound, the electronic identities blend and interact with the acoustic sounds in the same way that complex technologies extend our minds in daily life, becoming transparent and inseparable from our selves.
"... Throughout the recording, Pestova impresses as a model pf poise and technical control ..." Jorge Variego
"...Simply remarkable. A wonderful disc, expertly produced and performed." Colin Clarke
