Climb! Is a non-linear composition written for Disklavier which the pianist undertakes a metaphorical journey up a mountain, playing musical codes that are hidden within the score to control their path and trigger musical and visual effects, including the piano engaging them in an unusual physical duet. This research/performance was supported through the following EPSRC project: Fusing Semantic and Audio Technologies for Intelligent Music Production and Consumption (EP/L019981/1).
