Jesse Myers: The Minimal Piano

jmyers

Seattle pianist Jesse Myers presents an evening of solo piano music by living American composers, including the premiere of Myers’s work for piano and six-channel soundtrack. The music will focus on important minimalist works for the piano as well as new music featuring piano and electronics.

Myers has a strong interest in exploring the expanded possibilities of the piano. His concerts of John Cage’s Sonatas and Interludes for prepared piano have been featured on KingFM’s Second Inversion, Seattle Weekly, The Live Music Project, and were a part of The Stranger’s Best Winter Concerts of 2017. His recent work with the prepared piano has led to tours across the country including artist residencies and guest performances at Cornish College of the Arts, Bowling Green State University, and Lewis University.
