9 Lives of Piano (2021)

Eka Chabashvili, Nino Jvania, Tamar Zhvania

About this exposition

Since 2018, we have been conducting an artistic research that aims to research sound production techniques of piano in the 21st century. We have been inspired by the words of Karlheinz Stockhausen who declared, in 1992, that “piano music has come to an end and something quite different is coming… With the claviers made up to this time, there is nothing new to discover anymore.” The research resulted into a piece composed by a composer Eka Chabashvili in interaction with pianists Nino Jvania and Tamar Zhvania for 2 pianos, modified piano, video-installations and the virtual piano orchestra. The main aim of the piece “Has Piano Music Come to an End?” is to contradict Stockhausen and demonstrate various new possibilities of engaging acoustic piano in contemporary music. In this exposition we offer two different presentations of the same artistic research introducing some of the research results employing, on one hand, academic and, on the other hand, creative writing styles.
