Description:
Legerdemain, meaning ‘quickness of hand’, or ‘sleight of hand’, is the name of the set of techniques used by a magician, card sharp or street hustler to manipulate objects such as cards and coins secretly. The piece is akin to a musical cup and balls trick: three simple chords are permutated, shuffled and generally thrown around the piano in a what is a demonstration of pianistic dexterity. A soundtrack of sine wave impulses are bounced around the room as a resonance and reflection of the pianist’s actions.
