- Eight Studies for Automatic Piano by Seth Horvitz
Seth Horvitz is perhaps better known for his work as Sutekh which is a million miles away from this interesting album that Line have just released. Here he programmed an automatic piano to play some incredibly complex (and fast in places) pieces. This was performed live musicianless with a piano on stage! An interesting concept for sure and the music is as interesting. When it started I thought it was just some random avant garde tinkles but then structures do start to appear and you can't help but start to admire the precision involved. I guess aided by a computer it would be more precise as you've lost the scope for human error. But there's some hypnotic composition here which you can't help but enjoy. It's one of those rare records that makes you want to hear what's coming up next which is always a good thing. A thoroughly interesting release though not a particularly easy listen.
