These four short pieces are an outlet for my newfound interest in improvisation. Since the tape part for these pieces will not change it made sense to me to have a piano part that would always be different. The first piece uses short rhythmic gestures and drones. The second miniature is rough and aggressive in all registers of the piano. Miniature three is an homage to the group Negativland, one of my primary musical influences. Furthermore, the samples used for this miniature were taken directly from their own website. The final miniature is bright and shiny with all samples coming from a toy piano trill.
This is a live recording from my tour with Ensemble Ilusis in 2010.
