    I'm surprised that you've written a piano and percussion part that I might be able to play! One question: what do you mean by "hit"? That seems like a rather vague term that could be interpreted in many ways. Does it mean to hit the piano with the side of your fists rather than the knuckles? If so, perhaps "pound" would be a better word. Also, it seems like there are many different places on a piano that you can hit to make different tones; are there specific spots you want it to be hit? It would also vary greatly between different types of pianos. It seems very interesting like some "musique concrète instrumentale" if you will.

    Hmmm yes, I'm not yet sure where the instruments should be hit, knocked or tapped, so I will have to experiment. I do exactly know that I want the cellist and violinist to hit the body of their instruments with their hands, so I will probably just specify that in the next version of the score.

    I assume that fella holding a violin is a recent picture of the composer featured in this concert?

    Currently working on a piece called Palimpsest for string quartet for a performance in Hannover in September. So far, the piece has the same number of bars as the fourth movement of Mozart's String Quartet no. 19, but takes material from the movement and re-invents the material as an interlocking web of vaguely related gestures. The form of the piece doesn't follow any tonal or phrasal plan of the original material, but it does examine the textures, registers and articulations of the original as some sort of starting point to create a form for the new music written over the old.

    Very interesting concept. I write poetry from time to time and once did a similar thing with Coleridge and Xanadu, taking the same word count, meter and phrasing, each first line letter, but completely different subject matter. It worked really well, but I never thought about applying that method to music. Thanks, I think it might well be worth an experiment or two.
