Conlon Nancarrow ― ARTWORK
The Red Bull Music Academy Daily is the online publication by the Red Bull Music Academy, a global music institution committed to fostering creativity in music. This type was designed for an article on Conlon Nancarrow who spent more than fifteen years working with a player piano in self-imposed isolation in Mexico City. The notes via a piano roll – a continuous roll of paper with perforations (holes) punched into it. The roll moves over a reading system and the playing cycle for each musical note is triggered when a perforation crosses the bar and is read.
