ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
From the JRI Recordings press release...

Many pianos - no hands: The pieces on this recording were composed for up to six synchronized pianos, and range from a very spare and reflective elegy to wild and playful collages of familiar tunes. The computer control allows Green to create truly original voices from the plethora of hammers and strings, such as notes traded between instruments at lightning speeds, impossibly fast runs and arpeggios, and very dense shimmering textures. The surround sound mix is especially effective at immersing the listener within Green's compositions.

Electronically controlled yet sonically familiar, this music retains the rich warm tone of a grand piano. The melodic lines based on very human improvised gestures balance the precise control and dense counterpoint enabled by the computer.
