Book Synopsis
Like the prepared piano, the prepared digital piano feels just like a piano under the hands and often sounds like one, but it is full of surprises; instead of bolts and screws stuck between the piano strings, virtual machines of various sorts adorn the virtual strings of the digital piano, transforming it into an instrument that pushes back, sometimes like a metronome, other times like a recording played backwards. The virtual strings also tighten and loosen on the fly, dynamically tuning in response to what is played. Nostalgic Synchronic is a set of eight etudes I composed to explore the prepared digital piano, inspired by John Cage’s Sonatas and Interludes, György Ligeti’s Études and Musica Ricercata, Nancarrow’s Studies, and Bach’s Well-Tempered Clavier.
