From Afraid To Dance [Resonant CD 024, 2007]

She was the wife of the Ukrainian composer Wladimir Baranoff-Rossine (who Emilio is a fan of), the inventor of the optophonic piano, a synaesthetic instrument that was capable of creating sounds and coloured lights, patterns and textures simultaneously. Pauline was used to play this new instrument live with her husband whose she was the muse. With this track we wanted to reproduce a kind of far away echoes of a lonely music played by a woman who remained always in obscurity (also according to her will) though she played a fundamental role in the life of his more famous husband. This song wanted to give a voice to whom was in a way mute… The track has been recorded in autumn 2005. This description has been provided directly by port-royal.
