What are PianoLogs?
Well, you all know what WebLogs are: personal comments on more or less
important topics, published on the web for immediate consumation.
The Blog concept enables the (technically skilled) Web user to «shoot back».
S/He is now able to comment on the flood of information that s/he is
exposed to all day.
By doing so, the Web user becomes a more active part of the information process,
his/her EGO comes into play.
PianoLogs are pieces of piano music that were created on a specific day.
The basic material is improvised. The resulting MIDI data is
recorded on a sequencer, where I do some post-production work (mainly
cutting out redundancies and trying to „sharpen the image“).
I invite you to hear these compositions as a musical WebLog, as a poetic
comment on information.
Meta-information, if you like.
This is the first PianoLog to use the sub-bass capabilities of a Bösendorfer Imperial Grand Piano.
