's Drones & Piano
is a fascinating and thrilling piece for Piano and Pre-recorded elements, composed for pianist Bruce Brubaker.
Drones And Piano was commissioned by the 2010 Gilmore International Keyboard Festival for pianist Bruce Brubaker. The piece involves staccato stabs, dynamic discords and an innovative beauty that always shines through. The work was composed for Drones And Piano, meaning that each movement begins with a pre-recorded drone that underlies the rest of the movement. This allows for a certain degree of improvisation in the tempo and the rests which can give an element of unpredictability to each performance.
