Toyeurism is the powerhouse duo of pianist-composers Robert Fleitz and Elizabeth A. Baker, which explores the uncharted territory of works for two toy pianos with live electronics. Incorporating the talents of other composers from across the United States, Toyeurism seeks to further the work of living composers while promoting this unique instrumentation. The combination of toy piano and electronics offers a surprisingly huge textural palette for composers while presenting an interesting disconnect between visual expectations created by the small size of the instrument and a gigantic sonic experience for concert audiences.
Robert and Elizabeth exclusively use and support Schoenhut toy pianos. To find out more about Schoenhut Piano Company, please visit their website at www.toypiano.com.
