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 'Húsavík' arouse in you?
For me, this piece is nostalgic. I wrote it after travelling with a friend throughout Iceland, it reflects the otherworldly places we saw and reminds me of a beautiful moment in my life.
Describe 'Húsavík' in colour.
I would say yellow, but I don't know why! Iceland isn't yellow at all, it's gray and shite.
How was your performance experience at Phoenix?
I love Phoenix, it’s incredibly beautiful! When I first saw the Fazioli Grand in the centre of the space, I thought, "this is me. I just want to be in here all day, every day. Composing".
