Renowned contemporary pianist Tricia Dawn Williams performs work by Tokyo-born avant-garde digital performer Atau Tanaka, before Tanaka himself performs a selection of his work. Tanaka’s pieces look at different ways in which forearm muscle tension can be used to sculpt sound. A sensor system detects the electromyogram (EMG) signal, electrical impulses from the nervous system causing muscle tension, and renders a musical instrument out of the performer’s own body, allowing him to articulate sound through concentrated gesture. The performance will include a selection of pieces performed by Williams, including the premiere of All Work and No Play by Ruben Zahra.
