In collaboration with my dear colleagues and friends, Mekhla Kumar, Konstantin Shamray and Stefan Ammer, this multi-media project involved the performance of Scriabin's 10 piano sonatas enhanced with projected opal visualisations. Inspired by my lifelong fascination for this national Australian gemstone, the beautiful changing colours that accompanied each sonata were intended to emulate Scriabin's Synaesthetic ability, with the aim to create, much like his vision for 'The Mysterium', a fully immersive experience. The seven performances, which included masterclasses, lessons and public Q & A discussions, were given at the music Universities of Karlsruhe, Freiburg and Rostock (Germany ); The Mozarteum in Salzburg, the Music University in Graz, the Bösendorfersaal in Vienna (Austria) and at the Conservatorium in Luxembourg. We gratefully acknowledge the kind generosity of our sponsors; The University of Adelaide; The Ukaria Foundation; Jacqueline Wander; Maria Spizziri; Recitals Australia (auspicing body); and the many private donors who contributed to help make this project possible.
Stay tuned for the 2017 Scriabin Tour documentary...!
