Manhattan Creative Space Features Disklavier
Le Poisson Rouge is a gem of Manhattan's West Village, attracting the cutting edge of creatives from contemporary dance, performance art, theatre, music, and any combination of the above. Called "the coolest place to hear contemporary music in New York," by the New York Times, it only makes sense that the multimedia-ready theatre would include a Disklavier in their collection of instruments and technology.
Artists from genre-defying Francesco Tristano to improvisation icon Dan Tepfer to the electronics pioneer/composer/trombonist George Lewis have used the Disklavier in their performances.
Recently, Prof. George Lewis of Columbia University performed at Le Poisson Rouge as a part of 75th birthday celebration of composer Petr Kotik alongside Philip Glass and Alex Mincek (Assistant Professor of composition and music technology at Northwestern University)--check out their interactions with Disklavier in this clip:
