Composer György Ligeti described the music of Conlon Nancarrow as "the greatest discovery since Webern and Ives ... something great and important for all music history! His music is so utterly original, enjoyable, perfectly constructed, but at the same time emotional ... for me it's the best music of any composer living today."

I think Nancarrow's music looks as good as it sounds (for a close-up, play the video for Etude #37, above).  This Kickstarter campaign will raise the fees necessary to get permission from the publisher (Schott) to present animated graphical scores of nine Etudes for Player Piano on YouTube.

Risks and challenges

The only risk is that you won't like the result --- a risk I'm willing to take.
