Postclassical piano music & live algorithmic visuals
Music, visual art and technology collide in Larkhall’s moving, cinematic performance. A composer, pianist and creative coder, he has written software to turn the nuances of each performance into reactive visual projections. His harmonious music has earned accolades from across Europe and the USA, with his 2019 debut album The Sea Was Never Blue reaching the #2 spot on the iTunes Classical chart.
Algorithms play a role in our daily lives, shaping everything from weather forecasts, to driving directions, to social media feeds. But can they be… art? Composer-pianist and software developer Larkhall presents a show combining new classical piano compositions with live visuals which are created by his music as he plays. These “vividly beautiful,” “enchanting” compositions (Hämeenkyrön Sanomat / Chicago Sun-Times) shed new light on how STEM subjects can be applied outside of a traditional engineering context.
