Silver screens, black mirrors: Zubin Kanga (piano)

Windsor Building Auditorium

Pianist Zubin Kanga performs newly-commissioned works, exploring sonic relationships with screen cultures, including cinema, the internet and music videos.

One of the UK’s leading composers, Michael Finnissy, collaborates with filmmaker/composer Adam de la Cour on this major work that combines concert footage of the great Soviet pianist, Sviatoslav Richter, musical materials from Beethoven’s Hammerklavier Sonata, and images of Soviet gay erotica, exploring the secret inner life of the great interpreter.

Claudia Molitor uses film of her own hands notating the work to create a dance of sound and screen between herself and the pianist. Oliver Leith films and manipulates film of objects and locations in his home, creating strange juxtapositions of image and sound, and Nicole Lizée applies her unique glitchstyle exploration of cinema to the surreal, mind-bending films of David Lynch.

£12.50 (concessions available). Tickets available on the door or book online.
