      from Franck Smith Added 525 3 1

      Digital adaptation of the "prepared piano" ways of playing as first imagined by Henry Cowell and developped by John Cage in "Sonatas & interludes for prepared piano" (which aesthetic result is very close to his compositions for percussion quartet and Balinese gamelans) – using two TENORI-ON(s) and various filters. N.B.- These rehearsals are part of a series of solo pieces inspired by John Cage's experiments for prepared piano and Colon Nancarrow works for mechanical piano.

          'Tributes-Pulse' (65 min, HDCam, Dolby E, color, 2011) is a collaboration between American filmmaker Bill Morrison and Danish composer and percussionist Simon Christensen.
Christensen originally conceived of the project as a tribute to four American composers: Charles Ives (1874-1954), Conlon Nancarrow (1912-1997), Steve Reich (b. 1936), and Trent Reznor (b. 1965). Using exquisitely deteriorating nitrate-based archival film, and an original aerial shot, Morrison weaves a story from the remnants of disparate narratives of the 20th century.

              12|CJ|NC|12, for modified player piano, was installed in the UNCG Music Building from September 26-28 as part of the 9th annual New Music Festival. The installation was constructed by Joe Andruzzi and Jonathan Wall to celebrate the centennial of John Cage and Conlon Nancarrow. 12|CJ|NC|12 replaces the standard player piano roll with several independently moving paper loops. The pneumatic system that powers the instrument has also been modified, preventing most of the piano's keys from sounding. As with traditional player piano rolls, each loop has a single hole punched to trigger attacks; however, notes are more likely to be produced through indeterminate processes, such as the tension slightly slackening or a roll moving slightly to one side. Additionally, the piano's timbre has been transformed by rubber tubing or metal screws inserted into the strings. In this way, it combines several of Nancarrow's and Cage's major compositional interests— an aleatoric canon for prepared player piano.
