Jenny Q Chai: Piano Steampunk

$15 General, $10 Members
Curator: Linda Bouchard

Jenny Q Chai's “Piano Steampunk” program explores the relationships between piano and electronics, beginning with the earliest development of music for this pairing. Computers and electronics have interested and influenced composers for as long as they have existed, and have changed many composers’ approach to writing solo piano music, even those who have not worked with electronics, leading them to open new dimensions of the piano’s sound. This program traces the pre-history and development of music for piano and electronics across an international arena, with antennae tuned both to the past and the future.
