Something Old, Something New
January 13, 2012
Just a few weeks before I was going to try a rather thrilling new technological tool in a recital — an innovation that I thought would probably impress my audience with the preternatural with-itness of this guy playing old music with the latest wireless page-turning technology — The New York Times rather stole my thunder in an article about a Carnegie Hall performance that used those very tools.
Now the TED Talks present the pianist reviewed in that article talking about and demonstrating the Bluetooth-enabled procedure that I am finding so helpful:
UPDATE: A friend who was in the audience sends this photo of the iPad/AirTurn combo in use on December 8. (Since the picture was taken on an iPhone, and in the foreground you see a MacBook Pro making an audio recording of the music, Apple should be paying me.)
ANOTHER UPDATE: Of course there are other ways to turn a page.
