The Red Pages

red_pagesA collaborative project between the British multi-instrumentalist and composer, Mark Tranmer (gnac) and the Italian virtuoso pianist, Alessandra Celletti, the red pages was recorded live in the studio in Rome. Tranmer and Celletti met via myspace in late 2007 after hearing each other’s work. The 25- track album on cd 1 comprises eight main themes and variations. The album is predominantly piano-based – played by Celletti, with sporadic sprinklings of stratocaster by Tranmer. The main themes were written by Tranmer, and the variations by Tranmer and Celletti. Musically, the closest points of reference are the piano-based classical and soundtrack works of Michael Nyman, Phillip Glass, Wim Mertens, Sylvain Chauveau, and Ennio Morricone, as well as the piano-based work of post-rock collective Rachel’s. The second, bonus cd contains demos and alternative versions of tracks from the red pages, as well as ten new keyboard-based electronic pieces written and recorded solely as gnac.
