Oct 7-9: Music For Choking Disklavier At Pianos Without Organs Festival
Three Nights Of New Works For Computer Controlled Pianos And Small Ensemble
October 7th-9th, 2016, Greywalls Hall, Raleigh, NC
Pianos Without Organs is a music festival dedicated to the presentation of new works in the North Carolina region. The festival emerged from a desire to connect composers and audiences in the region with those working in national and international contexts via the unique facilities offered at Greywalls Hall. The name of the festival – a play on the Antonin Artaud / Gilles Deleuze concept of a body without organs – conveys an interest in innovative and critical approaches to bodies and instruments, mechanism and prosthesis; through performances, talks, group discussions, and educational opportunities.
