Erwan Keravec: Urban Pipes

Erwan Keravec is a highland bagpiper, composer and improviser. In seeking out the more unusual sounds, and ways of playing and listening to his instrument, far from its original cultural setting, he is exploring improvised music, free and ‘noise’ jazz, and establishing a repertoire of contemporary music for solo pipes, trio with solo voice and with choir. With an interest in movement and in settings associated with reinvention, he also writes, plays and improvises for dance.

Urban Pipes is a utopia aiming to show that the bagpipe is a universal instrument. To imagine music for solo bagpipe that does not evoke its cultural origin, music that is only music, with no other function than to be listened to. This project also entails a modification of traditional playing modes, as well as work on how to use the bagpipe sound and harmonic strangeness outside of strictly melodic practice.
