Diamanda Galas
De-formation: Piano Variations

Works for solo piano from the frankly terrifying Diamanda Galas. 'De-formation: Piano Variations' seems to contain one twenty-minute-plus track which is inspired by a Georg Heym poem regarding experimental treatments given to maimed soldiers in the First World War. Initially 'De-formation: Piano Variations' was written to be the backing for one of her distinctive vocal pieces, but Galas decided to let this thing stay instrumental. The result is a stormy record of dense keyboard experiments.
