CONTEMPORARY MUSIC FESTIVAL

SMOCK ALLEY THEATRE :: 14 April, 2018 :: www.smockalley.com

3 days of music, technology and art:

IZUMI KIMURA
Prepared Piano

One of Ireland's most inventive improvisers – Izumi Kimura – joins forces with two of the country's most imaginative composers (Francis Heery and Elis Czerniak) to reinvent the 'prepared piano' and extend its possibilities with live electronics through two new works specially commissioned for Music Current Festival. The new works are contextualised with John Cage's seminal Sonatas and Interludes, one of the best known works from the 'inventor' of the prepared piano. These new works follow Cage's original preparations to fix screws, bolts and rubbers inserted between the strings.

This programme is supported by Jeffers Pianos, in association with Galway Jazz Festival and Music Network.

PERFORMERS:
John Cage, (Selections from) Sonatas & Interludes
Elis Czerniak, New Commission (prepared piano and live electronics)
