the interdisciplinary piano
by Tricia Dawn Williams
TRANSITION is a portrait of the avant-garde piano that stretches almost one hundred years of repertoire. Each piece on the programme breaks new ground as each composer navigates through uncharted waters to depict a new profile for the instrument.
TRANSITION is a unique experience that transform the piano recital into an interdisciplinary performance featuring motion capture technology, video-art, electronic music and extended piano technique.
