5 Re-Inventions (1993) by Dan Becker
(no score exists for these works, which were programmed/composed directly into the computer - for performance files, please contact email@example.com)
5 ReInventions was written to be performed on a Yamaha self-playing Disklavier, or directly from tape using a Kurzweill sampled grand sound. (The enclosed CD contains the latter).
They are tangled up and twisted ‘cover tunes’ of five of J.S. Bach’s two-part inventions.
In live performance their exists a compelling theatrical element of watching a new ‘new-fangled’ keyboard playing, by itself, pieces that were originally written for an old ‘new-fangled’ keyboard.
