"Being Forced to Drop Out" (2010-2013)
Bil Smith Composer
A Work Commissioned by InterPublic Group (IPG) for piano, modified piano, toy piano, piano annointe, and tape.
"Bil Smith's work was ultimately an investigation into the essence of modern life, distilled through notions of synchronicity and dynamism. At the heart of his synaesthetic credo, sound is an aspect of the vibrational continuum; hence no difference is made between music and noise emanating from the intonarumori.
He (Smith) relentlessly cross-references sources, suggests unexpected associations and unearths exceptional archival material."
- Olga Bloom, Founder of Barge Music
