Mimesis

(2018)

piano & percussion (including midi drum pad)

Description

This piece uses the idea of mimicry to provide a framework for exploring the similarities between the instruments and the music they play. The addition of prepared piano and a midi drum pad enables the mimicry to be expanded so that it is often difficult to establish who is copying who, presenting a confusing audio-visual experience.
