This is a unusual piece for piano and electronics, written for Sebastian Berweck. The electronics are based on recordings of shovelling mud and the piano part involves a variety of transcriptions.
Sebastian Berweck, piano. Recorded live on November 5, 2007 at Payne Hall, Harvard University, Cambridge, MA.
