The Festival Piano+ Music for Piano and Electronics under the artistic direction of the internationally famous pianist, Catherine Vickers, is a clear indication, if any were needed, that the ZKM | Institute for Music and Acoustics devotes its attention not only to its own programme for scholarship holders, but also to the fostering of talented youngsters in the field of contemporary electro-acoustic music. For Catherine Vickers the combination of piano and electronics provides a wonderful opportunity of extending the rhythm and sound of her own instrument with the help of space distribution and synchronisation processes so that the keyboard instrument can be anchored in the current process of electro-acoustic composition in a way that makes it completely independent of common sampling methods. Catherine Vickers will curate the festival and perform along with Robert Taub, the pianist who came to the fore under James Levine and the Münchner Philharmoniker, the New Music specialist, Benjamin Kobler, and representatives of a generation of pianists who have devoted themselves to contemporary music. The whole iridescent range of music produced by a combination of piano and electronics will be presented.

The avant-garde composer, Dieter Schnebel (b. 1930 in Lahr) will be present for the performance of his composition Zwei Studien. A round-table discussion with artists and representatives of the media on the subject of the piano and electronics is also planned.
