Multi-genre pianist and music director Yshani Perinpanayagam is joined by Blake ‘Protodome’ Troise for a programme of Machine Music by herself, Koji Kondo, Julius Eastmann and Alex Paxton, including pieces for piano, synthesiser, MIDI piano, Nintendo Game Boy and EWI (Electronic Wind Instrument).
Blake is a musician, researcher and teacher best-known for writing chipmusic – a genre of electronic music based on the sound chips of older (8-bit or 16-bit) computers. While Yshani has performed at venues from Wigmore Hall to the London Palladium, at events from Huddersfield Contemporary Music Festival to the Barbican Mime Festival, and with artists from the Philharmonia to Nina Conti.
Yshani and Blake have performed for us before, as part of the National Videogame Arcade’s All Your Bass festival in 2018, and the sounds that they produced, along with their virtuosic technique, were amazing to witness!
This event follows an earlier concert with the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra.
