Anywhere in Time offers opportunities to hear the player piano firsthand and up close, as visitors to Nancarrow’s studio would have experienced it. In this session of Nancarrow Deconstructed, the architectural nature of the compositions is exposed and explained by the festival co-curator Dominic Murcott and special guest Alarm Will Sound.

Alarm Will Sound’s participation is supported by the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo and the New York State Legislature.

Part of Anywhere in Time: A Conlon Nancarrow Festival, co-curated by Dominic Murcott and Jay Sanders, Curator and Curator of Performance.
