Kate Ryder was Creativeworks London’s Creative Entrepreneur-in-Residence (CEIR) working with composer and researcher Dr Tim Ewers at Kingston University in 2014/15.
The CEIR project ‘Creating a super-piano’ creates an historical repositioning of the piano by exploring new technologies and extended techniques to develop a type of “Superpiano”. Using the “pnoscan” (™), a midi interface capable of creating extraordinary effects with a range of applications; Kate is currently developing an entirely new repertoire for the instrument.
Today’s performances demonstrate a cross section of new music commissioned by Kate for piano and “pnoscan” featuring premiers of new works: Ghost Sonata by Tim Ewers (electronics – Toby Bain) and Convection 1 by Yumi Hara (electronic programming – Guy Harries). Both world premieres.
