It is certainly too soon for a historical assessment of PIANO HERO by Stefan Prins. Nonetheless, with its incorporation of live-processed visual material, the work can be seen as exemplifying efforts among a young generation of composers, as well as the impact of new media and digital processing possibilities on the domain of music today. 

 

The "Rückspiegel" [Retrospective] project will present seven works from seven decades of the Darmstadt International Summer Course for New Music with sounds and words. The decisive factor in the selection was not so much the historical significance of the individual works as the question of how far each of them can stand for the discussions going on at the time of its creation, both in Darmstadt and elsewhere.
