Commissioned by: Keith Kirchoff
World Premiere: February 12, 2010. Keith Kirchoff, CNMAT, Berkeley, CA.

All of the electronic sounds are created using piano samples, most of which are captured live during the performance. The electronics are conceived as a means to extend and augment the piano’s capabilities, at times creating dense polyrhythmic textures.
