Miniature 2011 is a collection of compositions for solo piano and piano four-hands composed each week and shared (score and mp3) on my website. The project is a kind of music diary influenced by daily life. The project started on January 1st 2011 and ended on December 31st, never missing a single appointment to compose each week, every Saturday, for a total of 53 piano pieces and 207 minutes of music.
Artist Giorgio Gristina joined the project creating 53 “figured transcriptions”, one for each composition and composer Douwe Eisenga processed the audio clips of all individual compositions.
