WIKIPIANO at Royal Holloway

In this performance, pianist and Leverhulme Research Fellow Zubin Kanga performs newly-commissioned works that expand the possibilities of the piano through electronics, film, motion sensors and AI.

The concert includes Alexander Schubert’s WIKI-PIANO.NET, a work that It features a website that allows the public to edit the score and multimedia parts, creating a constantly evolving work that explores internet culture. Jon Rose’s Ballast is a wild virtuosic ride featuring a motion sensor controlling the electronics, Kate Neal’s Novel Piano uses stop motion animation in a whimsical work creating a piano out of everyday objects. Scott McLaughlin uses super-charged magnetic resonators to create otherworldly sounds from the piano. Finally, Adam de la Cour’s Transplant the Movie 2!: Operaion ‘Re-Rise’ Dark Return takes inspiration from 80s action and spy movies, as well as 80s video games, with a secret agent going undercover as a cocktail pianist to infiltrate an evil syndicate.
