  Kyle Gann in Santa Fe
Kyle Gann is a music critic for the Village Voice, a musicologist and a more importantly, a composer.
After the show I overhead Kyle say that he had made no mistakes, which was impressive considering the length of the piece, the challenging rhythms and his movement on-stage, which was executed with the possessed devotion of a character actor.
In Kyle's case, one is completely subjected to a new world, akin to being thrown into a society where not only do you not know the 'rules,' but you also do not speak the language.

 Kyle Gann - NetNewMusic/Sequenza21 New Music Wiki
A common Gann strategy is to set a rhythmic process in motion and use harmony (mostly triadic or seventh-chord-based, whether microtonal or conventional) to inflect the form and focus the listener's attention.
Gann's microtonal music proceeds according to Harry Partch's technique of tonal flux, linking chords through tiny (less than a half-step) increments of voice-leading.
In 2000, Gann studied jazz harmony with John Esposito, and began using bebop harmony as a basis for his music, even in contexts not at all reminiscent of jazz.

 Kyle Gann | Santa Fe New Music
Kyle Gann is well-known as our nation's leading musicologist for late 20th century and contemporary music (for The Village Voice and the New York Times, among others), but he is first and foremost a singular composer whose work ranges from haunting social commentary to mesmerizing kaleidoscopes of complex rhythms and altered tunings.
Since I first heard Kyle Gann's music in Chicago in 1984, I was convinced I was hearing the music of a composer working in altogether unique ways.
Twenty years later, Kyle's voice has proven to be one of the most original, interesting, and provocative voices in music today.

 Kyle Gann: Discography
"Gann brilliantly deconstructs familiar genres like ragtime, boogie-woogie, bop and Tex-Mex and reassembles the pieces in ways that are both achingly familiar and completely new, popular and avant garde, steady and revolutionary, experimental and polished.
The thin air moves in and around this mature evocation of events definitively entrapped in a past from where they can no longer return; just being able to have a peek at them through this ancient looking glass brings long nights of aural fascination.
"Kyle Gann's Native American homage 'Hesapa ki Lakhota ki Thawapi' ('The Black Hills Belong to the Sioux') is almost too gorgeous for its own good, but is saved from new age vacuousness by an underlying sadness and an intriguing structural complexity...." Bill Tilland, Option

I didn't know this work of Gann,the piano has held a fascination for his creativity; it is early from 1980-1981,yes the drifting in and around/ about inside outwards, incessantly a few tones proclaimed, like one the Scratch Orchestra's credo, "take a tone/timbre and follow it.
Gann as well finds a place here, sometimes the piano timbre is too beautiful, well for me, I found myself having to clean house the more I listen like nothing can be out-of-place., or asymmetrical.You come away from the work haven't walked someplace.

 Barnes & Noble.com - Music: Nude Rolling Down an Escalator: Studies for Disklavier by Kyle Gann, Kyle ...
As a composer, theorist, technician, and commentator on the state of new music, Kyle Gann is in an excellent position to analyze the problems of the contemporary scene and to do something about them.
Neither post-Modernist nor neo-Romantic, Gann is a self-styled post-Classical composer, who draws on the music of the past without intentional irony, and incorporates influences from Beethoven to Nancarrow and beyond to achieve an all-embracing music.
Yet Gann's Nude Rolling Down an Escalator: Studies for Disklavier seems quite a mélange of quotations, borrowed riffs, rhythmic puzzles, and pastiches of everything pianistic from Fryderyk Chopin and Scott Joplin to Henry Cowell, Bud Powell, and Terry Riley, with enormously complex rhythms and elaborate textures realized through a computer.
