Abstract:

4 Disklavier Preludes is one of the main works in The Gedanken Room (2021). This is a work that explores the implications of Quantum Computing for Music composition, both conceptually and practically. Its 4 parts explore the use of the Disklavier both as an input and output interface for building Quantum Circuits and retrieving its measurements, in a live interactive multimedia environment with which live performers interact. The cinematographic narrative addresses utopian/dystopian issues in human-machine interaction.
