TYPONEXUS Globalist Series: Lubomyr Melnyk

Recommended

Chapel Performance Space (map) Wallingford
Sat July 1, 6-10 pm All Ages

Ukrainian composer/pianist Lubomyr Melnyk can transport you out of your workaday doldrums with just the unparalleled swiftness of his fingers touching ivories. With monomaniacal focus, he turns the piano into a font of refulgent cascades and crystalline clusters of momentous beauty. Wikipedia tells us that Melnyk is the world’s fastest pianist, plinking 19.5 notes per second with each hand, but he also possesses endurance: He holds the record for most notes played in one hour—93,650. The thing is, they’re exceptional notes, some of the best notes your ears will ever receive. Melnyk will be performing amid works by an international array of visual artists in a new series curated by drone musician/artist Garek Jon Druss. Expect an evening of sublime sensory overload.
