Dan Tepfer

Natural Machines

6:30pm doors • 7:30pm show


In an age of unprecedented technological advancement, Dan Tepfer is changing the definition of what a musical instrument can be. Featured in an NPR documentary viewed by 1.5 million people, Dan Tepfer shows his pioneering skill in this concert by programming a Yamaha Disklavier to respond in real time to the music he improvises at the piano while another computer program turns the music into stunning animated visual art projected on the wall of National Sawdust’s “intimate, otherworldly space” (New Yorker). The Natural Machines performance lives at an utterly unique intersection of mechanical and organic processes, making it “more than a solo piano album . . . a multimedia piece of contemporary art so well made in its process and components and expressed by such a thoughtful, talented, evocative pianist . . . |that it becomes| a complete experience” (NextBop). Don’t miss your chance to experience musical history in the making!
