[Live Performance, 2012]

Adam Concert Room, NZSM

1/6

Live Performance for Piano, Fixed media, Tape players, Loudspeakers and Solid Drive Transducers 

 

This piece uses the loudspeaker to create sound by activating the piano. By placing the Solid drive transducers and loudspeakers upon the strings, sound fed through these vibrate upon the strings causing them to sound. Leaving the piano in a slightly 'prepared' state, different timbres are gained when strings that have objects placed on top of them are struck.

 

Tape players are then used to record audio fed through the system, then re-fed into the piano at differing speeds to create accompaniment, for the fixed media and performed parts.
