LP Duo started as classically trained musicians, but their research and work on different projects brought them music somewhere in between classical and popular music.
As members of the LP Duo, for the past 14 years, we have experimented with various possibilities of playing on two pianos. Our artistic curiosity and the desire to gain new knowledge and freedom led to our involvement with the Quantum Music project and the creation of a new instrument – the hybrid piano. In this talk, we will elaborate on our experience with using the new hybrid pianos within the Quantum Music project (http://www.quantummusic.org), but also discuss our ensemble as an artistic embodiment of duality, entanglement, and other quantum phenomena. Hybrid piano is a combination of a traditional piano and digital synthesizer with analog controls that allows different processing of acoustic and digital signals in real time and enables the pianists to continue to use concert pianos whilst equipping them with new colors and new, hitherto unexplored expressive possibilities.
LP Duo will be introduced by Dr Aleksandar Brkic, Lecturer at the Institute for Creative and Cultural Entrepreneurship (ICCE), who participates in the "Quantum Music" project with Sonja Loncar and Andrija Pavlovic, as a researcher and a creative producer.
No need to RSVP, just show up.
LP Duo will also perform on hybrid pianos at St John's Waterloo on October 3rd at 8pm. More information and tickets on https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/lp-duo-new-classics-beyond-for-2-hybrid-pianos-tickets-50040652940?aff=ebdssbdestsearch (£5 tickets for Goldsmiths students on the doors)
