I heard a feature this morning on NPR's Morning Edition about a bowed piano.
"To get a sense of what the bowed piano is, imagine a grand piano with the lid lifted off. Ten musicians crowd around, leaning over the innards of the instrument, like a team of surgeons performing an operation."

Saw him and his "surgeons" do this in 1987. Lovely stuff, though at that time heavily indebted to Steve Reich. Thanks for this! Will revisit!
Same here, I saw Stephen Scott's ensemble at a new music festival here in Los Angeles back in 1985. Just last week I pulled out an old LP of his music and gave it a spin. Nice stuff.
