sample the album:
"Music for two prepared pianos and electronics without precedent. Employing stochastic improvisations, live analogue processing, feedback experiments, atmospheric tape composition, ultra-physical episodic structures, all developed laboratory style over a month and recorded at its peak performance, this is a rare gem of live electro-acoustic instrumental music that defies the typical expectations of the given resources.
Initiated and completed in 2001, the Extended Pianos project was set up in a rock rehearsal room with two white baby grand pianos, some rare Australian synthesizers and an early version of the application Audiomulch. Featuring the pianists Erik Griswold and Anthony Pateras, and the electronic musician Robin Fox, this album documents the compelling results of their daily labors, culminating in 5 sophisticated pieces released here for the first time, 15 years later."-Immediata
