    the transmission and the strings are played by a virtual pianist the avatar of the pianist of flesh and blood sitting on stage while the wooden resonating body is substituted by a set of electro mechanical speakers But not only the piano is recontextualized The mechanisms of observing as done by the audience is also taken into the equation The act of observing underwent a radical change of meaning in a society which is ever more being monitored either by the millions of security cameras in public places a network of geo stationary satellites which can zoom in to human dimensions or the world wide web on which every day millions of homemade videos are posted and watched by millions of anonymous visitors Piano Hero 1 is the point zero of the Piano Hero cycle the pianist becomes a mere operator in a world of bits and bytes From Piano Hero 2 on the grand piano which has become a fremdkörper after the context shift of PH 1 enters the game to fully articulate the tension between the real and the virtual the human and the mechanical the past and the present More chapters in this cycle are envisioned and will be composed in the years to come Piano Hero 1 is commissioned by and dedicated to Frederik Croene Piano Hero 2 is commissioned by Huddersfield Contemporary Music Festival and is dedicated to Mark Knoop Further Piano Heroes are in process Credits Video recording of Frederik Croene playing on his piano frame by Kobe Wens Max patches for Piano Hero 1 2 programmed by Josiah Oberholtzer Klaas Verpoest Stefan Prins Frederik Croene playing on his piano frame Get the Flash Player to see this player WORKS INSTRUMENTATION Ι CHRONOLOGICAL SOLO 2011 2013 Piano Hero 2 pno midi keybrd live el video 2011 Piano Hero 1 midi keybrd live el video 2008 Ensuite vc 2007 Not I el gtr live el 2007 FITTINGinSIDE trmb 2006 Memory Space 3 tpt live el 2004 Etude intérieure 1 pno marbles 2 4 MUSICIANS 2014 Mirror Box Flesh Prosthesis 3 sopr ten sax perc pno electronics 2013 Flesh Prosthesis 0 2 ten sax perc pno egtr 4 ch soundtrack 2012 Generation Kill offspring 1 perc vc 2 gamecontrollers 2 video projections live electronics 2010 Fremdkörper 2 sax perc e gtr pno live el 2009 Infiltrationen Memory Space 4 4 electric guitars live electronics 2008 Fremdkörper 1 fl e gtr perc vc live el 2005 Erosie Memory Space 1 va bayan acc 2004 inDEPENDENCE string quartet 2003 In memoriam Luciano Berio pno contra bssn bssn 5 MORE MUSICIANS 2014 15 Mirror Box Extensions 7 musicians electronics video 2013 14 I m your body 14 musicians 4 ch soundtrack 2012 Generation Kill perc e gtr vc vn 4 gamecontrollers 4 video projections live electr 2012 Park e gtr quartet live electronics performers 2010 Fremdkörper 3 mit Michael Jackson 11 musicians and sampler 2009 Infiltrationen Memory Space 4 4 electric guitars live electronics 2006 Ventriloquium vc perc el

    In this fysical polyphony different voices are characterised by different fysical ways of playing the cello Inspired by the granular synthesis techniques that I m using quite regularly in my electronical compositions wright now I had the image of two sonic clouds each one existing of small sound particles with specific properties and generated by a specific fysical act that would continuously melt together at one moment and separate an instant later of which the densities first increase in order to decrease immediately after like two flocks of birds that meet eachother form one big flock and then separate again In Ensuite one such sonic cloud exists of hitting sounds generated by hitting the string in different ways with the wood of the bow The other exists of rubbing sounds generated by rubbing the strings in all kind of varieties with the bow Very soon in the composition all kind of differentiations combinations and changes of perspective come into being within these sonic clouds changing the polyphony and perspective continuously Once a more or less stable texture has been achieved it seems as if the two sonic clouds melted together for good into one swarming mass stable if you look at its surface unstable and dynamical if you look at its interior Then several temporal equilibriums in which the basic material is approached differently from a polyphonic point of vue each time succeed eachother rapidly after which a final state of temporal equilibrium is reached silence Program Notes NL Get the Flash Player to see this player WORKS INSTRUMENTATION Ι CHRONOLOGICAL SOLO 2011 Piano Hero 2 pno midi keybrd live el video 2011 Piano Hero 1 midi keybrd live el video 2008 Ensuite vc 2007 Not I el gtr live el 2007 FITTINGinSIDE trmb 2006 Memory Space 3 tpt live el 2004 Etude intérieure 1 pno marbles 2 4 MUSICIANS 2014 Mirror Box Flesh Prosthesis 3 sopr ten sax perc pno electronics 2013 Flesh Prosthesis 0 2 ten sax perc pno egtr 4 ch soundtrack 2012 Generation Kill offspring 1 perc vc 2 gamecontrollers 2 video projections live electronics 2010 Fremdkörper 2 sax perc e gtr pno live el 2009 Infiltrationen Memory Space 4 4 electric guitars live electronics 2008 Fremdkörper 1 fl e gtr perc vc live el 2005 Erosie Memory Space 1 va bayan acc 2004 inDEPENDENCE string quartet 2003 In memoriam Luciano Berio pno contra bssn bssn 5 MORE MUSICIANS 2014 15 Mirror Box Extensions 7 musicians electronics video 2014 15 Mirror Box Extensions 7 musicians electronics video 2013 14 I m your body 14 musicians 4 ch soundtrack 2012 Generation Kill perc e gtr vc vn 4 gamecontrollers 4 video projections live electr 2012 Park e gtr quartet live electronics performers 2010 Fremdkörper 3 mit Michael Jackson 11 musicians and sampler 2009 Infiltrationen Memory Space 4 4 electric guitars live electronics 2006 Ventriloquium vc perc el gtr 2 improvisers live el 2005 Memory Space 2 rec el gtr pno perc db bss live el 2003 No

    componisten beeldend kunstenaars aan de slag waren gegaan Ik heb de toehoorders op het moment dat ze van de voorgaande locatie naar de onze begonnen te wandelen elk een mp3 speler gegeven waarop ik vooropgenomen muzikaal materiaal had gezet Dat materiaal bestond uit het tweede deel van de compositie voor trombone die de mensen ook live te horen kregen maar dan startende van het eerste deel eens ze in het museum toekwamen die ik op voorhand had opgenomen In dat eerste deel heb ik veel gewerkt met ruisklanken zodat wat men hoorde op de mp3 s soms niet boven het straatgeluid zou uitkomen dat was de bedoeling op die manier ontstaat een dubbel perspectief op de voorgrond in hun oren de klanken van de mp3 speler op de achtergrond het straatgeluid en een spel waarin het ene het andere op een aleatorische Cageaanse manier overstemde afhankelijk van voorbijrijdende wagens wind etc Op het moment dat de mensen het museum betraden begon Ben de compositie waarvan ze op dat moment het tweede deel al hadden gehoord te spelen beginnende bij deel 1 De toehoorders moesten hun mp3 spelers aanhouden ook in het museum omdat er op dat moment een uitgecomponeerde interactie ontstond tussen de live klanken een granulaire verlengingen van sommige klanken die de trombone live speelde resulterend in een zeer vreemde on ears spatialisatie Tegen dat Ben live aan het tweede deel begon ben ik op de mp3 spelers al begonnen aan een granulaire morphing van die tromboneklanken naar straatgeluid dat ik op voorhand had opgenomen Via een zeer graduele overgang die je pas merkt eens het eindputn van de morphing was bereikt ontstond in de laatste 4 minuten van de compositie de situatie dat de luisteraars op de mp3 spelers het straatgeluid hoorden en op de achtergrond de live trombonist een complete inversie van de situatie toen ze buiten waren Op die manier heb ik geprobeerd binnen naar buiten te halen en omgekeerd Leuk was dat een aantal mensen daadwerkelijk echt gedesorienteerd waren bvb op momenten dat ze plots in de mp3 speler mensen tegen elkaar horen spreken opgenomen tijdens een wandeling door de straten en plots om zich begonnen te zoeken naar wie aan het spreken was Om dit alles vlot te laten verlopen was het erg belangrijk een zeer rigide timing te hebben Bon dit is alweer een veel te lange mail geworden Tot in den draai Groeten Stefan Get the Flash Player to see this player WORKS INSTRUMENTATION Ι CHRONOLOGICAL SOLO 2011 Piano Hero 2 pno midi keybrd live el video 2011 Piano Hero 1 midi keybrd live el video 2008 Ensuite vc 2007 Not I el gtr live el 2007 FITTINGinSIDE trmb 2006 Memory Space 3 tpt live el 2004 Etude intérieure 1 pno marbles 2 4 MUSICIANS 2014 Mirror Box Flesh Prosthesis 3 sopr ten sax perc pno electronics 2013 Flesh Prosthesis 0 2 ten sax perc pno egtr 4 ch soundtrack 2012 Generation Kill offspring 1 perc vc 2 gamecontrollers 2 video projections

  • Stefan Prins, Composer: Étude intérieure #1
    nube a quintet for piano and woodwinds that I composed for Champ d Action In the final part of this quintet I used marbles in the inside of the piano directly on the strings Already when composing this piece I was fascinated by the vast sound possibilities of this way of soundproduction and decided to write a piece for piano solo using only marbles directly on the strings This gave me the possibility to go one step further in my search for the emancipation of the sound From this idea the Etude Interieure 1 has been born In this composition the keys of the piano we re not used at all the complete production of the sound happens INSIDE the piano directly on the strings using marbles Absolute pitch was replaced in the notation by relative pitch Durations on micro level are relatively flexible ryhthm and gesticulation were seen as commutable parameters sometimes the rhythm was translated to gesticulation sometimes the gesticulation was put into rhythmical patterns The composition therefore has a very important visual and theatrical aspect the movements of the performer made when manipulating the strings with the marbles form a complete choreography which is impossible to perceive in recordings And this brings me back to my experiences as an improvisig musician Improvisations always have a very physical almost dionysian aspact that the performing of traditional written music often lacks In the etude Intérieure 1 this tactile and theatrical aspect is of great importance Or to use the words of Richard Barrett Music as a theatre of action Get the Flash Player to see this player WORKS INSTRUMENTATION Ι CHRONOLOGICAL SOLO 2011 Piano Hero 2 pno midi keybrd live el video 2011 Piano Hero 1 midi keybrd live el video 2008 Ensuite vc 2007 Not I el gtr live el 2007 FITTINGinSIDE trmb 2006 Memory Space 3 tpt live el 2004 Etude intérieure 1 pno marbles 2 4 MUSICIANS 2014 Mirror Box Flesh Prosthesis 3 sopr ten sax perc pno electronics 2013 Flesh Prosthesis 0 2 ten sax perc pno egtr 4 ch soundtrack 2012 Generation Kill offspring 1 perc vc 2 gamecontrollers 2 video projections live electronics 2010 Fremdkörper 2 sax perc e gtr pno live el 2009 Infiltrationen Memory Space 4 4 electric guitars live electronics 2008 Fremdkörper 1 fl e gtr perc vc live el 2005 Erosie Memory Space 1 va bayan acc 2004 inDEPENDENCE string quartet 2003 In memoriam Luciano Berio pno contra bssn bssn 5 MORE MUSICIANS 2014 15 Mirror Box Extensions 7 musicians electronics video 2013 14 I m your body 14 musicians 4 ch soundtrack 2012 Generation Kill perc e gtr vc vn 4 gamecontrollers 4 video projections live electr 2012 Park e gtr quartet live electronics performers 2010 Fremdkörper 3 mit Michael Jackson 11 musicians and sampler 2009 Infiltrationen Memory Space 4 4 electric guitars live electronics 2006 Ventriloquium vc perc el gtr 2 improvisers live el 2005 Memory Space 2 rec el gtr pno perc db bss live el
