COVER ME CAGE : premiere performance of new electronic arrangements of selected works by john cage originally written for prepared piano.
most of these pieces were written to accompany dance, pragmatically using only a piano stuffed with objects between the strings (screws, bamboo, plastic, leather, etc), creating a whole new palette of exotic percussive sounds.in the same spirit, these 'covers' are recreations using 'prepared electronics' -- using a midi keyboard and a computer, i perform the same notes as written on the page by cage's fair hand, substituting the prepared piano sound - carefully (or recklessly) - with sampled sounds from the electronic/recorded world.
