Das Bleierne Klavier
for piano and live-electronics year: 1999 duration: 12:00 min published on CD Musik in Deutschland 1950-2000The electroacoustic live-treatments of the piano are all controlled by the pianist himself. During his playing the musical gestures are traced and interpreted by the computer program to determine a large ensemble of parameters for the generation and playback of the electroacoustic part. This allows for a very direct "action - reaction" between the piano part and the electroacoustic sounds. The electronics become a prolongation of the instrumental gestures. The energy of the instrumentalist is causing decision-making in the electroacoustic part (which never will play exactly the same way) and is controlling equally the sound spatialization around the public.
