Preparado (working title)

Preparado is a composition for prepared piano and laptop-instrument for Albert van Veenendaal and myself. It will be a semi-composed piece for two improvisors, specifying certain musical aspects while keeping open other.

In 2012 we already started playing as a duo with a concert in Museum De Pont in Tilburg NL. A video of this concert can be found here.

A couple of weeks ago we went into Albert's studio and recorded a bunch of improvised pieces. The goal we set ourselves: short pieces, based upon certain rules or ideas. Last week we mixed the first four, and it sounds great! This material will definitely form the inspiration for my composition, but it will also be a separate track for our duo. We're discussing release methods, media, subscriptions, compact cassette. More soon.
