About

In Interference two players perform on the same instrument. One performer plays on the keyboard as per usual, while the other works inside the piano. The two players do not strictly speaking perform as a duo, instead a musical discourse is created by the way in which the two parts interfere with one another. The inside player manipulates the sound primarily with the use of their hands, or else with a series 'flexible preparations' that interact with the keyboard part in a fluid and tactile way. Each section of the piece then explores this relationship from a slightly different angle.
