Beyond Black & White

When Barth plays piano, he really plays it — caressing the keyboard, plucking strings, tapping or stroking the instrument until it purrs with pleasure.

Beyond Black & White

by Thomas Barth —

This double-CD of contemporary solo piano compositions was recorded in a room filled with 30 other pianos, introducing a sound concept called holistic resonance — music so pure and transformative that it teaches you to hear piano in a whole new way, especially when played through headphones.

The compositions go beyond New Age music to capture the full intensity, magic, fire, intimacy and alchemy of which the solo grand piano is capable.

When Barth plays piano, he really plays it — caressing the keyboard, plucking strings, tapping or stroking the instrument until it purrs with pleasure.
