Olga Neuwirth

Kloing ! / Hommage à Klaus Nomi-A Songplay in Nine Fits


    • Opéra National de Paris Garnier
      October 24

    Olga Neuwirth composed Kloing! for automated piano playing, among other repertoire, seismographic data (from the Grotta gigante in Trieste) while also being played by – or competing against – the pianist. Simultaneously pictures are screened, showing famous pianists, the seismic observation station in Trieste and a 1905 Welte-Mignon piano. Hommage à Klaus Nomi-A Songplay in Nine Fits pays tribute to an icon of popular culture, Klaus Nomi.
