Four composers transform and extend the familiar piano sound in vastly different ways. Stefan Prins (external link) pits the instrument against its own virtual avatar while Newton Armstrong (external link) subtly expands its harmonies. Johannes Kriedler’s work uses audio and video playback as disruptive partners to the live performer, and Joanna Bailie (external link) creates new environments mediated by the piano.
