Waves, thoughts and a player piano is both a speculative and practical investigation of strategies to invoke notions of reverie through a uniquely re-constructed player piano and musical improvisation. Based on the experience of listening to the sound of waves, the research considers sonic reverie and its value as a locus for creative thought and stimulus to sound and installation practice. Generative frameworks for translating and transcribing place-based reveries and embracing sound’s intrinsic ambiguity are informed by experimentation and improvisation, and extended through iterative processes - recognising that art based on imaginative translations of real world experiences may contribute to depths of experience as intensive as they are expressive.
