Anna Rose Carter opened the evening with a piano performance, followed by singer songwriter Ed Harcourt who premiered new material from his forthcoming album. Lily Hunter Green presented her ‘Bee Composed’ project which saw her place a beehive inside a piano and has helped increase awareness of the declining bee population. She was accompanied by violinist Tom Moore against a backdrop of bee recordings. Creative Director Michael Salu presented the exclusive first play of ‘Nocturnes’, a specially commissioned short film created for Piano Day in collaboration with Float PR. RK Polak created a abstract painting on Canvas using oil pastels, acrylic, enamel and pencil inspired by all of the performances. The evening ended with musician and creative coder Felix Faire who presented a real time audio visual performance using the ROLI Seaboard RISE.
