Co-Directors David Claman and Matthew Malsky present The Extensible Toy Piano Festival, an avant-garde haven for connoisseurs and newcomers to this highly theatrical electroacoustic event. The festival features performances and works by Phyllis Chen (of ICE), John McDonald, and Konrad Kaczmarek; compositions by Karlheinz Essl, Atsushi Yoshinaka, Claman, and Malsky; and guest performers Nancy Newman and mezzo-soprano Jessica Bowers. Inspired by a toy piano composition contest at Clark University, Claman and Malsky are taking their treasured playthings (including computers) on the road to create bona fide musical instruments. This is a concert of serious fun: intriguing and irresistible.
