Piano Phasing is based on a vision of the work's composer, Kristoffer Zegers.
As a child, Zegers was fascinated by the rhythmic phases of church-bells, which never ring in time. When he began to compose, he noticed that even pieces of music with minimal rhythmical differences are sometimes subject to these phases. It is this ‘weakness' (which often appears just by playing) that is the strongest element of Piano Phasing, making rhythmical variations possible despite the piece being fully composed and notated.
50 pianists and 25 pianos come together in this exciting large-scale performance.
