Grand Silence

Grand Silence is an improvised response by UnPiano to the landmark recording of Jonty Semper (UK), Kenotaphion (2001, Locus+). Semper collected all surviving recordings of the two-minute silences at the Armistice Day and Remembrance Sunday ceremonies at the Cenotaph in London from 1929 to 2000. Grand Silence is an improvised threnody of this remarkable memorial.

UnPiano (Derek Pascoe, saxophone (UK/Aus), Johannes S. Sistermanns, exciter, voice, (GER), and Gabriella Smart, synthesizer, (AUS)) have performed Grand Silence in Poland and Berlin. It is a poignant commemoration to the people who have lost their lives in War.
