Australian pianist Zubin Kanga calls it ‘music of mystery and multiplicity’: Dark Twin is a quite literally electrifying programme featuring multiple identities, malevolent doppelgängers and mischievous trickery, with the assistance and interference of electronics, computer interaction and multimedia. Whether playing through an avatar, inserting himself into old films, or creating complex loops of sound, this ‘adept subverter of the piano concert experience’ (Limelight, Australia) pushes the sonic and visual capabilities of the piano to the limit.

Kanga is an […] exciting pianist, effortlessly virtuosic and in complete command of this […] electrifying modern repertoire.

Keyboard Inventions…

Zubin Kanga’s Dark Twin M12  Dave Maric’s Vigil M14  Radiophonic Ritual M15  Will Gregory’s Moog Ensemble M17  Moments of Weightlessness M19  Clare Hammond’s cinematic piano M20  Vexations M40  Christina McMaster’s Multimedia Satie M42

Keyboard Inventions – with its nod towards J.S. Bach’s works of the same name – celebrates Satie’s legacy as the trailblazer, the architect of change in the way the piano has been played and written for since his own lifetime. Whether it’s the minimalist piano, the ‘prepared’ piano, the piano’s role in multimedia explorations or the wider bounds of ‘conceptual art’, Satie was there at the beginning.

This Cheltenham focus not only showcases the widest possible range of Satie’s own output; his multimedia influence is brought right up to date with avatars, synths, animation, wearable tech, new scores for old films and an inside-out pendulum piano.

Venue

Parabola Arts Centre, Cheltenham Ladies' College

Parabola Arts Centre is located in a Grade II listed building in the glamorous Montpellier district of Cheltenham. The centre was built as a facility for students of Cheltenham Ladies’ College and to be used as a public arts centre by the local community.

The original, listed Bayshill House was transformed into a gallery, bar and foyer area. The villa also houses all the rehearsal spaces, offices, video editing suite, dance studio and library. This means that the regular activity of the building takes place in the light, beautifully restored listed building.
