    Dances For The Electric Piano
    January 22, 2015 - January 22, 2015
    Museum Moderner Kunst Stiftung Ludwig Wien (mumok), Vienna, Austria

    On January 22, 2015 at 7pm "Dances For The Electric Piano" will be presented for the first time in Austria at Museum Moderner Kunst Stiftung Ludwig Wien (mumok), Vienna, as part of a tour that started in London at ICA London last fall, continued in Berlin at Berliner Philharmonie with further venues in Paris, and New York.

    Dances For The Electric Piano is a suite of 24 compositions to be performed on a Korg M-1 keyboard written by artist and composer Cory Arcangel. Each of the pieces is a short repetitive phrase inspired by house and trance piano breakdowns - the part of the songs where the music drops out to reveal a short repetitive piano “riff”.

    In Vienna, the piece will be played by Swedish organist Hampus Lindwall. Cory Arcangel, a Brooklyn-based composer and artist, and Hampus Lindwall, organist and art collector, share a strong interest in the technology of music and its impact on contemporary art, as well as an interest in pushing the limits of their practice.

    The concert will be followed by an artist talk with Cory Arcangel, Hampus Lindwall and Katharina Schendl (mumok).
