Code & Klavier –  the Toets des Tijds!

A unique program with an array of music that’s played, coded and the combination of the two.

 

This concert is presented by  Off<>zz, Felipe Ignacio Noriega (live coding) and Anne Veinberg (piano), which is an ensemble which draws from classical music practices  to morph live coding and piano performance into a ‘beyond’ classical music experience.  Since March 2017, Off<>zz has been developing the CodeKlavier,  a project supported by the Creative Industries Fund NL, which enables the pianist to live code through playing the piano. The concert will also feature one the Netherland’s finest live electronics performers, Robert van Heumen.

 

In this concert, Off<>zz will perform the opening set. Starting with a solo by live coding wizard Felipe Ignacio Noriega and continued with fresh and alternative approaches to piano and live coding music creation.  This will be followed by John Cage’s iconic 4’33’’ and a selection of shorter piano works  by Cowell, Wolpe, Rautavaara and Collins.

 

After the break, they will present their CodeKlavier project. Anne will first perform “hello world”,  winner of the Conlon competition 2017, where the pianist live codes a toy piano sampler. This will be followed by Motippets, a work that combines musical motifs and code snippets as a means of musical programming.  

Finally, Off<>zz will be joined by Robert van Heumen for an action-packed set of live coding, live sampling and live piano playing that  will be a feast of virtuosity on all keys.
