New music exhibits novelty in its situation, presentation, compositional process, performance practice, or outcome. In some pieces, that novelty is dependent on or derived from the use of technology.



Pianos is a concerto for solo piano/sampler keyboard and large chamber ensemble with extensive live electronics. Performed by renowned (former Regent’s Lecturer) Gloria Cheng, the piece is a collaboration with UC Berkeley’s Center for New Music and Audio
Technologies (CNMAT), and makes use of an extensive archive of sampled piano recordings.
