An Evening of Electro-acoustic
Piano Innovations

See a Program Booklet

From boombox to computer processor, When Brahma Sleeps is an electro-acoustic program for recital halls, black box theatres, and alt-classical clubs. With titles by Sarah Jane Lapp and surround sound/interactive works by Mark Wingate, When Brahma Sleeps is an eclectic array of keyboard tour de forces that - from Su Lian Tan’s “shuffle play” U-Don Rock to David Rakowski’s Chase for celesta and piano; from Eric Moe’s bop-infused Dance of the Honey Monkey to Eric Chasalow’s classic tape and piano pearl Due Cintamani. This program is funny and serious, earthly and sublime.  Repertoire for these programs is flexible and expandable.
