Following his acclaimed 2015 DARK TWIN tour, award-winning London-based Australian pianist and contemporary music specialist Zubin Kanga returns in a program of newly commissioned works for piano and multimedia by some of the hottest composers from Australia and around the world.
“Kanga is an equally exciting pianist, effortlessly virtuosic and in complete command of this (quite literally) electrifying modern repertoire.” LIMELIGHT Magazine
Cyborg Pianist showcases music at the cutting edge of innovation, extending the body of the pianist to do the seemingly impossible, via a vast range of new technologies.
It features a range of leading Australian and international composers, all exploring new ways of extending the capabilities of a pianist using interactive multimedia. Patrick Nunn’s Morphosis uses 3D motion sensors attached to the pianists’ hands to shape the electronic sound in a work he describes as “Boulez meets The Matrix”.
