Product details

The idea of writing a dialogue for mechanical and live pianos, in which spatial and visual elements took on an equal meaning, occured to me whilst living in Australia. After moving to Cologne I discovered Juergen Hocker's player piano studio and saw the possibility of making my own piano roll. The work developed gradually during a period of experimentation with the noteroll machine and the mechanical AMPICO piano, that plays Nancarrow's works.

Graphic ideas and formations often suggested their own sounds. The part for player piano exisits in 2 forms - as a note roll and as a disc for Yamaha computer piano.

Published by: Hug & Co. — 1 score (19p. -- A4 (portrait))

Difficulty: Advanced — Co-ordination between live pianist and mechanical piano

Duration: 10 min.

First performance by Sven Thomas Kiebler, Juergen Hocker — Nov 92. Schloss Solitude Stuttgart

Includes performance directions.

Influenced by Nancarrow's works for player piano.

This is a handwritten edition — it is not typeset.
