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. Wednesday, June 15 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. We are currently booking appointments. Please RSVP to Jodi Burack by phoning (212) 339-9995 ext. 227 or e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
