Peter Broderick shares Pulling the Rain — the second single off of Piano Works Vol. 1

16.9  2022


A comprehensive collection of Peter Broderick’s piano work to date, the recordings for Piano Works Vol. 1 (Floating in Tucker's Basement) were originally captured in Berlin to accompany the 2017 sheet music book Piano Works Vol. 1. The book contains 20 pieces for solo piano and a download code to access new recordings of all 20 pieces. Up until now, the only way to hear these recordings was to purchase the sheet music book.

The American composer elaborates on the second single: “There is a very satisfying rhythm to play on the piano, described in musical language as ‘3 against 2’. Philip Glass is responsible for popularising this rhythmic pattern. But he doesn’t own it! All musicians should feel free to employ it. In ‘Pulling the Rain’ I introduce this polyrhythm about halfway through the piece, transitioning from a straight rhythm into the syncopated one. Sometimes it’s difficult to come up with a title for an instrumental piece of music… but this one was easy. I’ve always liked to imagine summoning an epic downpour of rain as this song progresses.”

The double album arrives on November 25.
