junctQín Keyboard Collective - Nocturne

Somewhere There continued to foster a dialogue with the city's New Music community, inviting Joseph Ferretti and Stephanie Chua — two-thirds of pronounce-it-junction trio — to play a few pieces on upright and toy piano. It was a nice little sampler of the work junctQín does, including Feldman's "Piano Three Hands", works by Karlheinz Essl for piano, electronics and kalimba, some John Cage, as well as this open score piece by Vancouver's Jordan Nobles. Especially as part of an afternoon that included a lot of electroacoustic improvisations this was a welcome change of pace and a nice addition to the festival.

[Stephanie Chua will be exploring some other creative approaches to the piano in a solo Music Galley show on Saturday, March 21st with the self-explanatory title "Hands, Fists, Arms".]
