Colourful and inventive composer/pianist Xenia Pestova premières a large-scale work for piano and electronics by Ed Bennett.
This concert also features the première of a piece for the ROLI Seaboard by Pierre Alexandre Tremblay. The Seaboard is a radically new musical instrument that reimagines the piano keyboard as a soft, continuous surface marrying the intuitiveness of a traditional instrument with the versatility of digital technology.
Ed Bennett's piece is commissioned by INTER/actions Festival for Interactive Electronic Music, Frontiers+ Festival and Cork Orchestral Society and was made possible with funding through Beyond Borders from the PRS for Music Foundation, Creative Scotland, Arts Council of Ireland, Arts Council of Northern Ireland and the Arts Council of Wales.
