Sequitur V

for toy piano and live electronics [View Score]

Isabel Ettenauer: toy piano & live-electronics

Having written several pieces for the toy piano before, I dedicated “Sequitur V” to these interesting instruments which—in fact—has not much in common with the piano as we know it. Its sound resembles chimes or maybe parts of a gamelan orchestra and therefore is not connected to the great history of classical piano music from Bach to Stockhausen; a fact that makes this instrument more accessible for me. Although the toy piano is tiny in every respect, the sound that it produces in “Sequitur V” becomes incredibly rich thanks to amplification and realtime sound processing.
