Kate Ryder (Creativeworks London creative entrepreneur in residence) is a pianist renowned for pushing the boundaries of her instrument, the grand piano.
By combining the sound world with mixed media, sampled sounds and multi layering via live electronic manipulations, she is generating an entirely new repertoire and a historical repositioning of the instrument. During her residency at Kingston University she is exploring these new technologies through collaborations with composers and other artists, developing a kind of super-piano with a new midi interface, the 'pnoscan'.
At this upcoming recital, Kate performs an exciting programme featuring a range of these possibilities, with two world premieres written for her by Tim Ewers (using pnoscan technology) and the American composer Cindy Cox, and classic works by Jonathan Harvey and George Crumb.
