This ground-breaking composition, from 18-year-old American pianist/composer Conrad Tao’ debut full-length album Voyages, features Conrad using the Reactable Mobile app on his Apple iPad, incorporating both synth lines and real-time processing of his piano playing, via the iPad microphone. Conrad describes the piece as being inspired by the phenomenon of “fractured light, that appears differently depending on what angle you look at it from,” while also incorporating the concept of modern technology and its ever-changing development.

Conrad was listed in Forbes’ 30 under 30 list of noteworthy musicians in 2011 (the only classical musician featured), and hailed by renowned music critic Harris Goldsmith as “the most exciting prodigy to ever come my way” (Musical America).

“Conrad is the kind of musician who is shaping the future of classical music”
-New York Magazine
