Phyllis Chen: Hush (2011) from ICE on Vimeo.

“Hush (…)a revolving-in-circles, Eric Satie-like simplicity but built in drive and power to become absolutely riveting.”–The Washington Post

Hush was written as part of my 2011 ICElab commission.  The piece uses four bowls, hand-cranked music box, miniature toy piano (with the “decorative” black keys painted on) and prepared piano. The objects used to prepare the piano are screw, bolts and parts of a deconstructed music box.  Hush was released on The Nature of Thingness (Starkland) 2016.
