MUSIC CURRENT 2020 - WIKI PIANO
WIKI-PIANO is an Irish premiere by Australian pianist and new music adventurer Zubin Kanga who performs in Dublin for the first time. A champion of collaboration and new music commissioning, Zubin performs a highly personal programme entirely of works he personally commissioned for piano and electronics. As well as being known for his highly idiosyncratic performances, Kanga is also a composer, improviser and technologist. His work in recent years has focused on new models of interaction between a live musician and new technologies, using film, AI, motion capture, 3D modelling, animation and virtual reality. Zubin has developed a practice based around commissioning and collaboration, and here he premiers a new work, Fake, for piano and score-following computer by composer and festival Director Fergal Dowling.
