HOCKET's recording of Alex Weiser's water hollows stone is a world-premiere four-hand piano tour de force. Typical of his “personal, expressive, and bold,” style (I Care If You Listen), Weiser's EP explores the nature of music itself and of its power over us. Inspired by the Roman poet Ovid's adage Gutta cavat lapidem (dripping water hollows out a stone) Weiser casts the material of musical minimalism as an exploration of the nature of music itself and of its power.
