The Magnetic Resonator Piano
Created by London-based composer-researcher Andrew McPherson, the Magnetic Resonator Piano is a hybrid acoustic-electronic instrument which augments the capabilities of the traditional piano. Electromagnets inside the instrument induce the strings to vibration, creating infinite sustain, crescendos from silence, harmonics, pitch bends and new timbres. Sensors on the keyboard record the continuous position of every key. The instrument is played with an extended performance technique that includes partial key presses, light taps and sweeps, vibrato and variable pressure into the key bed. The Magnetic Resonator Piano has been used in performances worldwide by over a dozen composers, including in recent projects with the London Chamber Orchestra and the band These New Puritans.

Playing this remarkable instrument will be five of LA's most accomplished pianists: Nic Gerpe, Aron Kallay, Richard Valitutto, Steven Vanhauwaert, and special guest Genevieve Lee. The concert will feature newly commissioned works from Julia Adolphe, Jeremy Cavaterra, Alex Elliott Miller, and Elise Roy, as well as existing repertoire by Daniel Fox, Andrew McPherson, Daniel Shapiro, and Tony Solitro.
