Piano Roll Online Conference

This is a message from Daniel Allenbach (Hochschule der Künste Bern):

We are excited to announce an online virtual conference on November 21, 2020 at 17:00 GMT (18:00 CET, 09:00 PST, 03:00 AEST). This half-day meeting will include condensed lectures from representative topics in piano roll study. It aims to continue the communication and collaboration sparked by the 2018 gathering, and to be a prelude to the planned 2021 conference in Switzerland. 

The conference will occur online via Zoom and will offer interactive opportunities for questions and group discussion. Topics will include the scanning and digitization of rolls, history of roll manufacturers, performance practice on rolls, and the pianola and roll performance today. Full program to be published October 1.

Speakers will include:
Heike Fricke
Neal Peres da Costa
Birgit Heise
Peter Phillips
Marc Widuch
Sebastian Bausch
Kumaran Arul
