Piano Piece No. 1
Boston Series
1967, 5:57 min.


In Piano Piece no. 1, I laid the groundwork for my future work in algorithmic compositional design. The piece represents rule-based composition even though the computer program embodying the rules is a virtual one, existing only in my mind. The first performance of the piece took place at a Composer's Forum, New York Public Library, in 1969.
