This program focuses on the sonic interaction of an acoustic piano and a computer. Each piece – though aesthetically varied – reflects on aspects of the past (the piano), and uses that reflection to inform future possibilities (the electronics). Each element is used is used to reflect its natural strengths: the piano explores the myriad of its timbral possibilities, from simple preparations, to resonant harmonics, to dizzying finger passages. The computer meets the piano, complementing and building upon this natural sound world, thus exploring sonic possibilities impossible by the piano alone. Includes works by Dan VanHassel, Christopher Trebue Moore, Elainie Lillios, Paula Matthusen, and Keith Kirchoff.
