Inspired by both Terry Riley and Steve Reich’s work with phase and tape loops, in addition to John Cage’s thoughts on generative composition, 'The Gestalt Piano' is a piece of music for eight pianos and invites the audience to share the role of composer with a computer.

As individual piano loops of different lengths overlap; melodies and rhythms are formed and perhaps never repeated. The piece begins when you enter the space, its duration is that of your stay, and its existence is only made possible by your perception of musical relationships.
