History-Making Process Brings Departed Piano Legends to Life; One-on-One Media Demonstrations Available by Appointment Today and Wednesday at Midtown Studio.

Zenph Studios, Inc.:
WHAT:   Now a piano performance recorded decades ago, by an artist
        no longer living, doesn't have to be experienced as a scratchy
        mono record. It can ring out as clearly and brightly as if the
        original artist were in the room, with the piano keys and
        pedals moving up and down exactly as they did the first time.

        Raleigh-based software company Zenph Studios, Inc.
        (www.zenph.com) has developed technology that breaks
        down the sounds of an old recording, digitizes them,
        and reproduces them as "live re-performances" on a
        precision computerized player piano. The end result
        can be a stunning modern recording of a "lost"
        classic, a "ghostly" live performance, or even printed
        sheet music from an impromptu jam session.

        Experience this yourself during one-on-one demos this week
        in New York City. You will hear Glenn Gould
        (1932-1982) perform excerpts from Bach's Goldberg
        Variations just as he did in 1955; Art Tatum
        (1909-1956) playing Too Marvelous for Words from a
        live 1955 party recording; and a 1926 performance of a
        Chopin prelude by French pianist Alfred Cortot
        (1877-1962).

WHERE:  Yamaha Artist Services, Inc. 689 Fifth Ave, Third Floor
        (Enter at 54th Street) New York City

WHEN:   Tuesday, June 14 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
