TRANSFORMATION presents three interactive piano + multimedia works written in collaboration with Megumi Masaki that reimagine the piano and pianist’s artistic expression through new technologies, and transform the listener’s concert to an immersive, theatrical, and cinematic experience. These works explore new models of interaction between sound, image, text and movement to augment the piano and its surrounding space as a visual as well as musical instrument. This album also includes a documentary film about the inspiration and collaborative journey between Megumi Masaki, T. Patrick Carrabré, Keith Hamel and Bob Pritchard. TRANSFORMATION hopes to engage a wide audience in impactful and transformational experiences that motivate dialogue and action.
