As the first of Phoenix's Instrument Series, MONOCHROMATIC will delve into the unexpected. Pianists from the classical, jazz, and experimental spheres will explore bold performances of contemporary works and reinvigorated classics.
What emotions does ‘Being’ arouse in you?
This piece I wrote in my mid 20s and it reflects quite a tumultuous time, but amidst that, some really good times.
There's also a lot of improvising in it, and I can add in and respond emotionally to how
I'm actually feeling in the moment, as well as drawing on past experiences.
Describe ‘Being’ in colour.
So many colours would describe this particular piece, because it draws from very different parts of my life. It's also been a really lovely opportunity to bring the colours from many years ago, mixed with my experiences more recently, so best described as ‘rainbowy’.
How was your performance experience at Phoenix?
I would happily move in here and perform for my own pleasure and anyone else's, permanently.
I've even figured out where to put a bed! This performance space is both visually and acoustically magnificent.
