Galeshka Moravioff is a Paris-based composer, film director/producer and painter born in Lugano, Switzerland. He graduated in Ethnology at the Paris University in 1980. His music (including scores for Griffith, Einsenstein, Murnau’s Nosferatu or Fritz Lang’s Metropolis) bears a personnal – eg untaught – approach to composition, occasionaly with the help of electronic. In 2000, he collaborated with Charlemagne Palestine on a film score for a classic russian film by Abraham Room. During the eighties, he released several piano solo records, of which this is Piano Solo vol 2. Purposely subtitled ‘Musiques Plastiques’, the album is a collection of daunting harmonic melodies that retains some of Ligeti’s complexity in more insistent explorations of a chosen chord. Each track evolves around a specific chord and its fundamental, at first exploring the peripheral tonalities, delaying the resolution of the fundamental for as long as possible. ‘Musiques Plastiques’ (‘Musiki Kinamo’ in the unidentified african language translation from the cover) is color music based on tonalities. Enchanting sound carving piano.
