Music for two prepared pianos and electronics without precedent. Employing stochastic improvisations, live analogue processing, feedback experiments, atmospheric tape composition, ultra-physical episodic structures, all developed laboratory style over a month and recorded at its peak performance, this is a rare gem of live electro-acoustic instrumental music that defies the typical expectations of the given resources.

Initiated and completed in 2001, the Extended Pianos project was set up in a rock rehearsal room with two white baby grand pianos, some rare Australian synthesizers and an early version of the application Audiomulch. Featuring the pianists Erik Griswold & Anthony Pateras, and the electronic musician Robin Fox, this album documents the compelling results of their daily labors, culminating in 5 sophisticated pieces released here for the first time, 15 years later.
