about

Inspired by the revolutionary struggles of the past year (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.
