Description

'Departure' is the third full-length album from Belle Chen. It marks her departure from the realm of pure classical music - furthering the transitioning from her previous album Mademoiselle, whilst keeping to the theme of travel from her EITO Music catalogue. The album fuses piano and sound design with an emphasis on original music, where Chen explores adapting traditional music and sounds from around the world to the western piano through extended technique. Traditional instrumental ensembles are recreated on a single piano, and Chen draws from the piano the unexpected sounds ranging from gongs, bells, cajon, guitar, guqin, and guiro - multi-tracked to form her very own band. Chen plays piano, prepared piano, toy piano, kalimba, melodica, and sound design on this recording, where she composed all tracks except track 11, which is by Piazzolla. One can catch a glimpse of Chen's classical background in fleeting moments where familiar classical melodies are quoted and manipulated. Belle's vision is to explore how sounds from the 'real world' can be integrated into the realm of classical music to create a different listening experience- much alike how sampled sounds are very frequently used by DJs and producers in mainstream and world music. All her works are inspired by her love to travel and exploration and motivated by the stories and shared experiences of the people she meets through travel.
