On Miniatures, Swiss composer and producer Samuel Reinhard looks to indeterminate techniques of mid-century experimental composers to produce a sonic path forward that's as refined as it is evocative. While Miniatures is built from recordings of short piano gestures decaying towards silence, amid the four movements that comprise the suite, something else grows. Notes cycle, collide, and wash away within boundaries the artist has set, but in their wake new processual textures develop. A hiss blankets the harmonic material, and clicks that once marked sharp cuts between repetitions become a percussive undercurrent. Working with digital tools, Reinhard conjures the interior of an animate environment and extends an invitation to notice the small stuff that swells when you settle in with duration. Cover photography by Samuel Reinhard; design by Kaj Lehmann. Edition of 200.
