The Recordist

The Recordist

 

(ENGLISH)

A record album entirely dedicated to piano solo

Raphaël Angelini’s astonishing new record album is the result of the 20 years that he spent researching on the sound matter and the piano technique. After two opus focusing on the French song, the belgian artist came back to his first love and entirely dedicated his new record to piano solo. This refreshing album contains pieces from Scarlatti, Chopin, Joplin as well as eleven original compositions that Raphaël Angelini wrote in his youth.

Produced and recorded by the artist

Raphaël Angelini wanted to remain true to the spirit of his label and therefore immersed himself in completely independent and automous creative work. The task was gigantic as the album was recorded and finalised by the artist himself, without any intervention by a third party. This is probably the first time that such record is produced as the pianist is traditionally surrounded by a sound engineer and a technician-tuner. Recording alone also allows to dive into the vision of Glenn Gould who considered the sound recording as one of the most natural ways of expression.

Un disque entièrement dédié au piano solo

Après 2 albums de chansons françaises, Raphaël Angelini revient à ses premières amours avec un disque entièrement consacré au piano solo, « The Recordist ». L’album est le résultat de 20 ans de recherche sur la matière sonore et la technique pianistique. Véritable bulle de fraîcheur musicale, le disque contient des morceaux de Scarlatti, Chopin, Joplin ainsi qu’onze compositions originales écrites par Raphaël Angelini durant sa jeunesse.

Produit et enregistré par l’artiste

Raphaël Angelini souhaitait travailler de manière indépendante et autonome, fidèle à l’esprit de son label associatif. Même s’il s’agissait d’un travail titanesque, l’artiste belge a donc réalisé et finalisé l’album lui-même, sans aucune intervention extérieure. Ce disque constitue sans doute l’une des premières tentatives du genre car traditionnellement, le pianiste est toujours accompagné d’un ingénieur du son et d’un technicien-accordeur.
