    Master Box is an archeo-futuristic work of music and sound from Robert Stillman. Like past work by the composer/multi-instrumentalist, Master Box combines pre-jazz American folk-form, surreal sound-collage, and evocative, unfolding melodies.

    Recorded during a one-year stint as an apprentice in a player-piano workshop, Master Box is about the Piano as Contraption- it portrays the instrument, traditionally (classically) associated with the ‘Sublime,’ as the sum of all those wood and metal parts Stillman saw lying around the workshop floor (the ‘Collages’ on Master Box are sonic studies of these piano innards). The EP is not only a salute to the ‘physical’ attributes of piano, but to the maverick musical styles that exploited them (ragtime, boogie, etc.).

    This CD comes in a hand-made gatefold package constructed from player piano roll, including the essay 'The Mystery and Player Pianos'.

    Includes unlimited streaming of Master Box via the free Bandcamp app, plus high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more.
