Artist Statement:

    TriplePlay utilizes three pianos: an acoustic grand played by a ‘live’ performer, an acoustic piano which receives MIDI data Írom a computer, and a digitally sampled grand piano tuned in 1/8 tones which also receives MIDI data via the computer. The concept behind the composition is a variation on the typical performer and tape genre where the ‘live’ musician attempts to integrate and synchronize with a prerecorded tape usually consisting of electronic sounds. In TriplePlay, however, the pianist must coordinate with the other two pianos to create a musically accurate performance. The end result is much closer to acoustic chamber music rather than an electronic music experience. With Todd Welbourne, piano.
