For many composers today, rethinking the relationship between the auditory and the visual, sound and movement, is a central concern – often connected with (but not limited to) a post-digital perspective on new media. Interestingly enough, the classical piano remains a benchmark for many of those compositions. The essays collected in this volume shed light on the potential and challenges of media-integrated piano composition from a threefold perspective: musicology, performance and composition. They explore the way in which performers deal with conceptual media set-ups (challenges that are seldom taught at music academies), what media integration means for composers today, and the ways that audio-visual concepts change the aesthetic contexts of experience.
