Bang on a Can: Pianist Vicky Chow in Tristan Perich’s Surface Image

April 27, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Bang on a Can and the Jewish Museum present Bang on a Can All-Stars pianist Vicky Chow in Tristan Perich’s Surface Image for solo piano. This monumental performance-installation with 40-channel 1-bit electronics echoes the shimmering quality of Paris’ 19th century arcades. Perich’s piece is inspired by Walter Benjamin’s renowned essay “Art in the Age of Mechanical Reproduction” and is presented in conjunction with the Jewish Museum’s current exhibition, The Arcades: Contemporary Art and Walter Benjamin. Chow’s recording of Perich’s Surface Image, acclaimed for it’s “surreal, cacophonous beauty” (The New York Times), was listed #4 in Rolling Stone’s 20 Best Avant Albums of 2014.
