Duane Pitre Omniscient Voices

Duane Pitre

Omniscient Voices LP/DL

Duane Pitre returns with his first solo album in six years. Omniscient Voices is an articulate, intense and emotionally resonant set of five pieces for justly tuned piano and electronics.

"...a complete, immersive work, a blissful pulsing conversation between the organic and the electronic ... you feel warm and safe and that when it’s over you need to play it again." - 5 stars from Mojo

"Pitre's understanding of minimalism is laudable, and his use of tuning unique and expressive. 'Omniscient Voices' is an absorbing record that slowly reveals itself until it's firmly lodged in the frontal lobes." - Boomkat
