state of grace

Disklavier, computer, acoustic processing. Recorded at the Banff Centre for the Arts (1993).

Some thoroughbred cars are described as being at rest only when fully at speed. This notion of an entity achieving maximum consonance only when completely exhibiting an extreme capacity is the principle idea that guides the development of this piece. State of Grace explores some of the limits of the Disklavier in order to articulate a few of these capacities.
