28 April 2022, 8pm (doors at 7.30pm)

Join us for the last New Music concert of the 2021/22 season.

Pianist, composer and technologist Zubin Kanga has for some years been working with world-leading technology researchers to create the Cyborg Soloists project. A multimedia extravaganza, this unmissable season finale will incorporate roller-coaster visuals with themes ranging from the cult of Celtic river goddesses to the simplicity of wind in the trees. Zubin will perform on piano, newly invented digital instruments and interactive devices, in works composed by Christopher Fox, Luke Nickel, Georgia Rodgers, Louis D’Heudieres and Zubin himself.

CYBORG SOLOISTS is funded by a UK Research and Innovation Future Leaders Fellowship.
