The bitKlavier Commissions is a collection of pieces composed for bitKlavier by a group of wonderful composers I’ve known for many years. With funding from the Cone Foundation through the Humanities Council at Princeton, I was able to commission this group to explore the instrument and create some small pieces; I am SO excited by what they have written, and am learning a lot about the instrument in the process. When I first created bitKlavier, it was a direct outgrowth of my own compositional process, and after initially sharing some of the pieces I had made with/for it, I learned that others might be interested in working with it as well, but given how idiosyncratic and personal it is, it’s a fair question whether it’s toooooo much mine for others to be able to make it their own. For me, these pieces put that question to rest”
