ACOUSTO-ELECTRIC
Stephanie Chua, piano
Electro-acoustic music is defined as “Music in which electronic technology is used to access, generate, explore and configure sound materials.” Acousto-Electric music is the anti-thesis of this. Its definition can therefore be conceived as “Music in which acoustic instruments are used to mimic and explore electronic sound.” International performer and junQtion co-founder Stephanie Chua’s programme aims to produce this very effect through the acoustic means of the piano.

Programme:

Code Thumbnails 8 (2013)
Hiroki Tsurumoto (world premiere)

Serynade (1998)
Helmut Lachenmann
