Faster Than Sound: Pekka Kuusisto, Peter Gregson, Reactify

Friday 17th May 2013

Aldeburgh Music’s experimental programme, Faster Than Sound, which joins the dots between musical genres and digital art forms, is holding their next event tomorrow evening.

Internationally acclaimed violinist Pekka Kuusisto and cellist Peter Gregson have collaborated with London-based technologists Reactify and composer Nick Ryan to perform an innovative programme of new works, exploring the interaction of live performers and electronics.

The latest in the Faster Than Sound series present new software goPlay, which intelligently ‘listens’ to the players, allowing them to improvise and interpret the music without the limitations of a soundtrack or strict metronome. The software has been programmed with key elements to enable it to act as a true accompanist.

Watch the video below for a small insight into tomorrow’s highly anticipated event.

The concert will begin with a talk at 6:30pm, ahead of the 8pm concert.
