Wavering Worlds #20
The series „Wavering Worlds“ provides a platform for local and international artists and musicians who oscillate between musical and artistic genres. Within this framework various forms of multimedia concerts and performances are presented.
Eli Wallace is a pianist, improviser, and composer who resides in Brooklyn, NY, leading his own projects, collaborating with other like-minded artists, and co-curating the interdisciplinary performance series Invocation. His work as a pianist displays his vast milieu of experiences from classical, jazz, and free improvisation, incorporating elaborate piano preparations that John Lewis (The Guardian) says is „… pushing the boundaries of the prepared piano.“ His compositions employ notational strategies to broaden how musicians produce sound and the ways in which they interact. Over the past decade, he has appeared on dozens of albums and performed at esteemed venues such as The Stone, New York, NY, Roulette, Brooklyn, NY, Mizzou International Composers Festival, Columbia, MI, and Experimental Sound Studio, Chicago, IL.
