The Almost Well Tuned Piano

Matthew Bourne

Taking its name from experimental pianist and composer La Monte Young's 'Well Tuned Piano', this event aims to showcase inventive approaches to parameters and site. The point of departure is the piano situated in the Delius Centre's architecturally (and acoustically) spectacular Church Hall which as the name of the event would suggest is not quite tuned to perfection. Pianists Imani Hekima, Stephen Grew and Matthew Bournehave been invited to approach this as a challenge and perform sets that explore the idiosyncrasies of this rough gem and the space in which it lives.


Imani Hekima is a jazz pianist based in Bradford.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DMpicspKEdY&feature=relmfu

Stephen Grew is a pianist specialising in free improvisation from Lancaster. http://stephengrew.bandcamp.com/

Matthew Bourne is an internationally acclaimed Leeds-based experimental composer and pianist whose past performances have involved the complete destruction of the instrument. http://matthewbourne.com/
