Artists Statement

Invited Artwork. Venue: Montgomery Hotel

A computer is connected to a Yamaha disklavier grand piano, so that it can be fed a series of electronic musical scores that have been found on the world wide web. Unprepared Piano performs each score from beginning to end, randomly choosing the piece’s orchestration.
