April 1st will see Peter Broderick’s classic Erased Tapes debut
Music For Falling From Trees reissued on vinyl and CD.
Through relentless touring and multiple album recordings, Portlandbased
Peter Broderick has established himself as a contemporary
composer, known for his innate gift as a musical medium to picking
up any instrument, turning his musings into poignant songs. The
scope of Peter’s work is vast – his recordings and original score work
currently feature in dance arrangements, art installations, films and
documentaries. He collaborated with many like-minded
contemporaries such as Nils Frahm and Greg Haines, and featured
on Clint Mansell’s Last Night soundtrack. Peter’s signature
emotional depth cuts through any instrument to create stirring,
personal music that is full of artistic detail. Currently an artist in
residence at Sirius Arts Centre in Cobh, Ireland, 2016 has much in
store for Peter.
2009’s Music for Falling From Trees, a 30-minute piece in seven
sections, was created for a contemporary dance by London-based
choreographer Adrienne Hart at Neon Dance. Adrienne was looking
for a score of piano and strings, so Peter left the guitar and his voice
aside and focused entirely on those two timbres.
The dance tells the story of a man in a psychiatric hospital, and his
struggle to maintain his identity. The music is sometimes
melancholic, sometimes playful, sometimes chaotic, but with the
combination of piano and strings, full of beauty, reverence and awe.
IN HIS OWN WORDS: “In late 2008, Adrienne Hart contacted me
about scoring her new work, Falling From Trees. In Adrienne's
words, ‘the piece is set in a psychiatric hospital and centered around
one man's struggle to retain his identity in the most extreme of
circumstances.’ There are four dancers in the piece. One male
playing the patient, and three female hospital workers.
I had been making music for a variety of film projects, but the
thought of scoring a dance was very exciting to me. I was on tour at
the time, so I wasn't able to start writing the music until I had a
break in early January. The dance premiered on January 21st, so I
had about three weeks to create the score. I camped out up in the
top of my father's barn with some minimal recording equipment, my
violin and viola, and an old broken piano.
Given the time constraints, I approached the music in a very open
way. Rather than sit down and try to compose something, I just set
up a microphone and started playing. After coming up with a couple
of themes on the piano, I started recording, using those small
themes and improvising around them. Most of the sections have a
small core that is composed, and then the rest is improvised. Luckily
for me this method seemed to work. I would work all day and then
send a sketch over to Adrienne, and every time her response was
positive. So in this way we worked very well together. I give my
hugest thanks to Adrienne for trusting me to create the music for her
wonderful work.
Adrienne told me from the beginning she was looking for a score of
piano and strings. So I decided to take this literally and make a rule
not to use any other instruments. In the script it called for the sound
of a ticking clock. I made this sound by tapping on the body of the
violin with my fingernails. The sound of an electric shock given to the
patient is depicted by a quick, distorted piano chord. And all other
droning and bass tones were made by extending and processing
violin and/or piano tones, etc. Thank you very much for listening.”
