Music for two pianos, one with the sustaining pedal off, and the other with the pedal on for the entire piece.
‘Off And On’, was composed in the late summer of 2016 for two pianos. The title refers to the basic motivation of the piece; in that one piano has the sustaining pedal off throughout the piece while the second piano has the pedal on for the entire duration of the work. The different sonorities of the two pianos interaction give the work its particular characteristic soundworld.
