    LUBOMYR MELNYK - »Supersense Session«

    01. Palisade no.A3
    02. Vocalize no.29

    Palisade no.A3: This piece is the reworking of an idea that first came to Lubomyr around August 2017. It has a brooding and ominous character, and suggested to me a vague feeling of as though something were lurking in the darkness, or of the worries we have when we fear something unwanted might happen. There is no specific "story" in this piece, it is just a feeling that arises inside the music when it was first born, and then the music begins to create its own path in the wilderness of life. I started to record this piece in September 2017. At first it began with a much simpler unvaried first version which grew into this no.A3 version. There will probably be more versions as I live with this piece through time. All the versions of Palisade are basically improvised from the main thematics that form the heart of the music.
    Vocalize no.29: This is an improvised Vocalize, one of many purely harmonious works which have the piano singing out in melody. This Vocalize was improvised for this recording.

    Lubomyr Melnyk is a Ukrainian pianist and composer. Through his pioneering work in the 1970’s, he developed the technique of “Continuous Music” for piano, and with it a stunning new language for the instrument, based on its actual sound. By way of this new technique, he set several world- records on the piano, notably in Sweden in 1985 where he was recorded playing at over 19.5 notes per second – a speed that has never yet been matched, making him the fastest pianist in the world. Since the mid-1970’s, he has performed concerts with his music world-wide as well as radio recordings. Most of his works are for piano solo and duo, although there exist several works for orchestra and various ensembles. While his revolutionary piano playing was mostly ignored by the classical institutions in its early years, his music is gaining an ever-wider international awareness.
    This album features five recent works, that display the beauty and magic and virtuosity of his playing.
