Programme Note

Composer note
Orizzonte, for piano and electronics, consists of gently overlapping sinewaves that set the stage for a meditative and introspective piano melody. This piece was composed for Hills Not Skyscrapers, a band devoted to combining live electronics, composition and improvisation, founded by Missy Mazzoli in Amsterdam in 2004. The sinewaves were created using SuperCollider software. Orizzonte ("horizons" in Italian) was first performed on a piano that had been left out in the rain for a year, in a dilapidated squat hidden in the heart of Amsterdam.
