FOUR PLACES IN QUEENSLAND marks a return to the traditional piano for Brisbane/Dutton Park composer Erik Griswold, who has recently created works for trombones in tinnies, flutes in a forest, and 20 kilos of rice spilling over an arrangement of kitchenware. FOUR PLACES explores four unique Queensland landscapes, taking as its inspiration the sounds of the natural environments of Mt. Nebo, Cunningham’s Gap, Girraween, and Condamine.
Griswold is joined by three of Queensland’s most celebrated pianists – Stephen Emmerson (Griffith Trio), Kylie Davidson (Topology), and California-based Liam Viney – to premiere the work as part of the Kawai Keyboard Series. Eclectic Australian-American musician Erik Griswold fuses experimental, jazz and world music traditions to create works of striking originality. Specializing in prepared piano, percussion and toy instruments, he has created a musical universe all his own that is 'sincere' (neural.it), 'playful' (igloo magazine), 'colourful and refreshingly unpretentious' (Paris Transatlantic).
Griswold performs as a soloist, in Clocked Out Duo (with percussionist Vanessa Tomlinson), and collaborates with musicians from diverse backgrounds as well as visual artists, and writers.
