It is a mysterious quality of the canon that captivates Pauset: here, technique can change into an aesthetic experience. Masters of vocal polyphony from the Renaissance like Johannes Ockeghem showed how it is done – and Pauset takes up this musical mystery in his multi-part cycle of canons for piano.
During the long composition process, Pauset's split relation to the piano undergoes a change. In Neuf Canons he brings the instrument to its limits, turning the keyboard virtuoso Nicolas Hodges into a pedal virtuoso.
The historical canon technique is most radically applied in Perspectivae sintagma I for piano and electronics. In this work, Pauset adjusts interpretation and musical text to each other live and then reincludes the differences in the composition.
