CANCELED: The Gilmore Keyboard Festival
...a multimedia concert experience
with new music and art from
around the world...
ZOFO is blazing a bold new path for piano-four-hands groups by focusing on contemporary repertoire and commissioning new piano duet works from noted composers around the world. ZOFOMOMA, the dynamic duo's new groundbreaking multimedia commissioning project, toured Australia in May 2019.
The ZOFOMOMA Live Concert Experience unfolds as an aurally and visually stunning walking tour through a virtual museum of modern art. Against an ever-changing backdrop of contemporary paintings, 15 new ZOFO-commissioned duet compositions are revealed throughout the 72-minute continuous performance. And in a nod to Mussorgsky, this 21st century "Pictures at an Exhibition" leads viewers from one gallery to the next accompanied by a new Promenade Theme arranged by ZOFO's Keisuke Nakagoshi.
For this cutting-edge project ZOFO solicited new works from top composers around the globe, and requested each to select a painting representative of his or her culture as a springboard to the creative process. The result is a rich tapestry of sights and sounds reflecting the cultural, musical and artistic diversity of our world community.
