To celebrate the release of her new album, A O R T A, on New Amsterdam Records, acclaimed pianist Vicky Chow will perform a selection of electroacoustic works from the album.
A O R T A follows Chow’s recent recordings of Steve Reich’s Piano Counterpoint (Nonesuch) and Tristan Perich’s Surface Image (New Amsterdam Records) and features six new works written for piano by composers Andy Akiho, Christopher Cerrone, Jakub Ciupinski, Jacob Cooper, Molly Joyce, and Daniel Wohl.
Steel pan wizard/Rome prize-winning composer Andy Akiho will join Chow to perform two works from his album.
Loud Objects are Tristan Perich, Kunal Gupta and Katie Shima. Wielding soldering irons over an antique overhead projector, Loud Objects wire up live musical circuits. Punctuated silence occupies the first few minutes of their set while the initial circuit is connected. The resulting sound grows dense as more microchips are added.
