A new quick piano quartet I wrote based on melodies I hummed to entertain my new baby twins Theo and Grace. In the style of Schubert. Vienna solo strings, Tonehammer Montclarion piano, EWQL SO glockenspiel and castanets.
Trippy and euphoric, as if in some kind of incandescent field of nonexistent daisies. Add fretwork of polished hexagons and stir. Yamaha VSS-30 toy sampler, Colossus, RA, Stylus RMX.
Kosta Potamianos describes it thus: “The penguins are on the road again, future, flightless nomads with no destination, weighed down by all the strange and wondrous items they have scavenged from the dessicated mall — it’s a silent journey, as the sun sets and the moon rises, and they settle, exhausted and mute, into a luminous ravine, where water, duly apportioned, is to be had for all, and maybe a safe haven for a cozy night’s rest. They pick and poke at the strange valuables they sighingly unload from their narrow, tuxedoed shoulders, as curiousity is overcome with exhaustion, and they fall asleep, like children beneath an xmas tree, amidst a heap of hastily unclad toys, and the moon lit upon them, promise them a nght’s respite from danger and wonder.”
