This performance presents material from the album Nightports w/ Matthew Bourne (Leaf) for multiple pianists and live electronics. Nightports is based on a simple but unbreakable rule of restriction: only sounds produced by the featured musician can be used. Nothing else. But these sounds can be transformed, distorted, translated, reworked, processed and reprocessed, stretched, cut, ordered and reordered without limitation.
Nightports is about amplifying the characteristics of the featured musician and the sounds they make. In this version of the project, the delicate, lyrical beauty of Matthew Bourne’s playing is explored and celebrated alongside the frenetic and chaotic energy he can produce.
