Derek Piotr (Audio)

Hosted by Tom Roe.
A special edition of Other Music featuring Derek Piotr, and his new solo release, Bahar (Bit-Phalanx: 2015.) The album title, as with many of Piotr's titles, can be interpreted several ways. In Turkish, Bahar means "spring”, but can also be translated from Maltese to mean "sea". The album was recorded with four woodwind players and showcases Piotr's classical training for the first time in his solo career. Since AGORA, Piotr has eschewed conventional notation in favor of intuitive and electroacoustic composition processes, but Bahar marks a return to his formal education.
