Songs In The Key Of Survivial
By Leo Svirsky
(Ehse 024)

Inspired by recent revolutionary struggles (as well as their historical antecedents), on his debut LP, pianist-composer Leo Svirsky crafts a diverse though singular suite. Texts from placards and protest signs as well as critical (insurrectionary) theory are repurposed in poetic and disarmingly private compositions for piano and voice. Interpenetrating these pieces are dense, abstract, yet lyrical improvisations, where overwhelming edifices of sound can suddenly give way to delicate harmonies and unexpected silences. A powerful though unstable dialectic reaching towards a hidden center.

As with all of our releases, the entire album is available to listen to for free. Interested in the LP, CDr or MP3s? See the purchasing options to the left.   Video/Press/Reviews
