Experiments for "Meditation for Barbara" for bowed piano
January 28, 2012 - Oliver has threaded "bows" into the piano strings to experiment and try out passages of a new piano piece he is writing for American pianist Barbara Lieurance. The bows are made of several strands -- from 18 to 36 -- of fishing line. The technique is featured in a challenging 1973 piano work called "Rhapsodies" by Curtis Curtis-Smith, which is one of the other works that Ms. Lieurance will perform in a concerts during 2012 and beyond.
