EVE for Disklavier and Mezzo Diane Schaming by Tim Nohe published on 2012/09/02 23:13:31 +0000 EVE was scored for Disklavier (a computer controlled Yamaha acoustic grand piano) and Mezzo-Soprano. The lyrics were drawn from love letters exchanged at Eastern State Penitentiary in the spring of 1862. EVE refers to Elizabet V. Elwell. She was in illicit correspondence with fellow prisoner Albert G. Jackson. The lyrics were inspired by their letters and emote the spaces, loneliness, love-longing and occasional frustration and anger of their short-lived affair. The work currently exists as a piano and voice score, midi file for Disklavier, and as a “scratch track” recording made with Diane Schaming, who was to debut the work in the “Rush Hour” concert event organized by Dr. Linda Dusman.
