A collaboration between pianist Emily Manzo and Paul Rowley performed at The Stone.

Emily played a selection of works for piano and toy piano, accompanied by live video elements created in response to the music. The program included works for solo piano by John Cage (Dream, In a Landscape, Suite for Toy Piano), Morton Feldman (Piano PIece 1952, Extensions 3), Eve Beglarian (Play Nice), and Helmut Lachenmann (Filter Swing, Shadow Dance).

The videos were created at a recent residency at The Experimental Television Center in New York. Using the proprietary video system at the Center, Paul created a library of elements which was edited edand manipulated live during the performance.
