Contemporary Composition and Performance

For over 40 years, composers for keyboard instruments have been exploring and exploiting opportunities presented by technology-equipped keyboard instruments and computer software programs. The Disklavier PRO is the most capable concert piano that can be used for these kinds of works.

The Disklavier PRO has a complete MIDI system that can communicate every keystroke and pedal movement to a computer or mobile device that runs interactive music software. The PRO also has a playback system that enables the performer to interact with compositions that are partially played by the computer itself. It is even possible to use the Disklavier's Silent System to prevent the hammers from hitting the strings, effectively turning the instrument into a “MIDI controller.”

When your audition committee is ready, access through The Disklavier Education Audition Program and your Disklavier PRO piano will actually reproduce the original performance as though the student was at the keyboard.
