Karel Goeyvaerts's Piece for Piano and Tape (Stuk voor piano en tape) was composed in 1964. It explores the potential relations between a live piano performance and a manipulated recording, distributing them around a central axis in the manner of his 1950s serial music's procedures.[1] Goeyvaerts originally thought of synchronizing both parts, but he subsequently decided to contrast the different natures of the fixed recording and the live performance.[2]
