I think that any sound needs someone that listens to become a music piece, in this action there is an interpretation, therefore the Music doesn't belong to the composer anymore once out there. For example, the first time I listened to Yann Tiersen's music I was delighted by his depth and simplicity: I fell in love with a certain music piece that a friend played on my piano; Some time later I found this same music in a film and I must admit I got really confused because that wasn't the landscape I had pictured in my mind.
The song of the week is one of Tiersen's darkest tracks: "La Dispute". He says this piece "is about extreme violence, blood, death and the strange state of shock you feel in the moments after something horrible has happened", however people might think "it's a romantic thing to listen to on a date". I wonder if we are capable of listening for what it is... What do you think?
About the Curator: Christian Silvosa
Argentinian pianist, composer and producer. From Classical and Tango to House and Ambient, Christian is always looking forward to incorporating new sounds to his music.
After many years collaborating with different artists in Buenos Aires, Christian released his first soloist ep: Blood Moon Eclipse. The album presents "his own interpretation of classical, jazz and film-music composition, on which beautifully crafted piano melodies and dreamy, cinematic arrangements create a perfect soundtrack for cosy winter evenings by the fire" (Annie Rew Shaw - Lost in the Transmission Magazine).
His classical music background also blends perfectly with electronic music elements, converging in a unique sound that can be heard in "Las Olas" (Ambient music project, co-produced with Sidirum). Also, film scoring, advertising music, and Non-linear compositions (video games) are some places where this versatile composer finds inspiration.
