MUSIC CURRENT 2018 - Stefan Prins, Piano Hero
DUBLIN SOUND LAB presents
MUSIC CURRENT 2018
CONTEMPORARY MUSIC FESTIVAL
SMOCK ALLEY THEATRE :: 12 April, 2018 :: www.smockalley.com
3 days of music, technology and art:
Stefan Prins, Piano Hero #1–#4
An immersive cycle for midi-keyboard, grand piano, live-cameras, video and live-electronics (2011–2017)
Stefan Prins makes his Irish debut at Music Current as festival guest composer. Prins is a fearless composer, eager to explore beyond convention and any perceived musical boundaries.
His mastery of both technique and technology are evident in this Piano Hero series of pieces. At times whimsical, or even throw-away, the Piano Hero pieces demonstrate Prins' dedication to revealing the relationship between materials and their context, and to imagining new musical forms through extra-musical materials and technologies.
Together with Stephane Ginsburgh (piano) and Florian Bogner (computer music realisation) this team produce a tour de force of technical and technological virtuosity.
