six pianos…

September 1, 2006

This is the opening of a piece for six pianos which I wrote earlier this year, for a first performance in Leeds Corn Exchange, an extraordinary building encasing a large oval-shaped space on three levels, linked by curving staircases. This was for a FUSELeeds/spnm concert in May curated by Rolf Hind, who had the great idea of filling this wonderful space with the sound of lots of pianos. I thought of my music working on different layers like the architecture it was written for. It’s called Music for Strings and Hammers, performed by Rolf Hind, Sarah Nichols, Noriko Ogawa, Andrew Ball, Richard Casey and Daniel Becker.
