Ryan Lott: Pentaptych
Title: Pentaptych
Label: This Is Meru
Product Type: VINYL LP

Pentaptych is a collection of 9 new tracks from Ryan Lott, taken from the ballet piece commissioned by the Philbrook Museum of Art and presented by Tulsa Ballet.  The original evening-length work was choreographed by Ma Cong and included a live, original painting created by Eric Sall on-stage (Pentaptych's cover is another of Sall's pieces). It premiered in September of 2018 at the Tulsa Ballet Theatre.  About the score, Lott writes: "In dance, music is as much the space in which movement occurs as is the room itself. Those of us who write music for dance are, in that sense, architects. ?For Pentaptych, I sought to create a series of?resonant spaces?for Ma's choreography, and for the generation and regeneration of Eric's paintings. Each musical movement explores a consistent instrumental palette, led by the violin (and it's viola and cello counterparts), in various stages of abstraction. We hear familiar sounds accompanied by unknown colors, just beyond the reach of familiarity. My hope is that navigating through this array of "rooms" feels as much like an exploration as a homecoming.
