Pianist Oni Buchanan will be kicking off her fall season with an incredible new piece commissioned from the electroacoustic composer John Gibson, giving the brand new “Uncanny Valley” its world premiere at the University of Michigan Museum of Art in Ann Arbor, Mich. on September 27.

The piece promises to be unforgettable. ¬†Based on brand new poetry from Jon Woodward’s book Uncanny Valley (Cleveland State University Poetry Center), the complex, concert-length score features delicate interplay between piano, electronics, and spoken word (Woodward will be on hand to perform the reading throughout the piece).

The performance is part of a regional tour that Buchanan will be taking through the area, including concerts and larger music-and-poetry-based residencies at University of Michigan, Saginaw Valley State University, and Hope College.
