Piano Sequenza by Talibam!

ONLY 2 COPIES LEFT!

Piano Sequenza is a unique publication by Talibam! published by Endless Editions which coincided with their performance at the Film Society of Lincoln Center's "Sound + Vision" series in August 2015. As a celebration of the 50-year anniversary of Luciano Berio's Sequenza IV for Piano, Talibam! decided to take on the compositional challenge of producing their very own Piano Sequenza. 
 
"Our method was to trigger piano notes using VHS audio from our personal collections, and to allow the spontaneous composition of our Sequenza by large groups of people in perpetuity. Specifically, to generate the piano notes, we recorded 88 separate minutes from our personal self-made VHS tapes onto 88 separate tracks into a digital audio workstation. We then programmed each of the 88 VHS audio tracks to trigger its own unique midi piano note — 88 tracks, 88 keys. Using this method, Talibam!’s goal is to create a different Sequenza for each instrument."

15 minutes of this composition and source video were recorded specifically for this VHS release!

Piano Sequenza by Talibam! is an infinite composition, but this limited release is available only as an edition of 10 copies through Endless Editions and is signed by Talibam!
