Felix Leuschner (composer/performer), Wong Yun Qi (pianist), Spirio I r
The piano has enjoyed the status of being one of the most versatile instruments in the world since the beginning of time - the mainstay of intimate salon concerts, the constant loyal partner in traditional forms of chamber music, the heavyweight star shining upfront in orchestral concertos. With 88 black and white keys, sizes reaching up to almost 3 metres, and a sound spectrum spanning 4185.5 Hz, the piano really seldom needs convincing to perform alone.
What if we told you, you could now perform alone on one piano, and have the joy and luxury of having as many pianos/pianists as you wish (and could possibly imagine!) join in the game with you - anytime, anywhere, and all by yourself?
Join composer Felix Leuschner and pianist Wong Yun Qi as they explore a whole new world of creating and performing chamber music - experimenting with acoustic illusions, blurring the boundaries between reality and virtual reality; analogue and digital; past and future, reinventing time and sound as we know it, exhausting the endless possibilities of marrying music and technology, and having a ball of a time stepping into the new realms of piano performance, V.2 - All these made possible by the Steinway Spirio | r and the unique electronic software programs created by Felix Leuschner.
