Still, for piano & electronics, was composed over 2012-2013 by Robert Piéchaud, as a musical tribute to Robert Smithson, and in particular to his earthwork Spiral Jetty (1970).
Still was performed at Collège des Bernardins, in Paris on June 13, 2013. Image montage is by photographer Raphaël Chipault.
Headphones or good sound system recommended!
Still has a two-movement structure:
I - Construction of the Earth
II - Inner Jetty
This work is mirrored in a diptych with Morton Feldman’s Palais de Mari for piano solo: vimeo.com/80349557
