5 Nights, 11 Pianists: Piano Soundscapes

Conor Hanick and Imri Talgam craft an evening celebrating the piano as noise maker, extracting poetry from the most extreme sonic possibilities the instrument offers. Accompanied by a visual synthesizer (visuals by composers Elliot Cole and Ryan Francis), Morton Feldman’s Triadic Memories is the evening’s centerpiece, as a beguiling series of slowly-evolving images coordinate with the music in realtime. The concert opens with Stockhausen’s Klavierstück X.
