Pierre-Yves Martel :: Estinto
Pierre-Yves Martel – viola da gamba, harmonica
Long-form, slowly evolving music. Isolated events framed by silence. With Estinto, the follow-up to his 2014 solo release Continuum, Martel continues his experiment in the maintenance of restraint, observation, and control. Playing the viola da gamba and the harmonica simultaneously, Martel opens a space in which both instruments can extinguish themselves, disappearing into a new haunting sound.
