is a live recording of solo piano improvisations performed at Roulette's Interpretations Series in March 2008 by "hyperpianist"
Denman Maroney. Maroney is inspired by nature and the music of John Cage, Ornette Coleman, Henry Cowell, Duke Ellington, Charles Ives, Thelonious
Monk and Karheinz Stockhausen among others. Maroney plays what he calls “hyperpiano”, which involves bowing and
sliding the strings with copper bars, steel cylinders, Tibetan prayer bowls, rubber blocks and CD cases and gives him a unique
sonic vocabulary. He also uses a system of temporal harmony based on the undertone series that allows him to improvise and
compose in several tempos at once.
