"Music is the cup that holds the wine of silence. Sound is that cup, but empty. Noise is that cup, but broken.”

Robert Fripp

Shoot the player piano

 
Annie Gosfield lives in New York City and uses to play piano and sampler with her own group and composing for many ensembles and soloists: John Zorn, Elliott Sharp,  Ikue Mori, David Moss, Marc Ribot, Davey Williams & many others.

"Shoot the Player Piano" is a 1999 work work for video and music: an imaginary orchestra of aged and unusual mechanical instruments. Almost all of the sounds that you hear did not come from the accompanying instruments on the screen (with two exceptions: the sound of the paper roll turning, and the banjo tremolo). For this piece, she used a large library of samples detuned, altered, edited, and arranged.
