Celebrated pianist Chris Abrahams appears in a rare New York solo performance Friday, May 18th, 8pm at ISSUE Project Room’s 22 Boerum Place theater. Perhaps best known as the piano player with the long form trio the Necks, Abrahams has developed a formidable reputation as a solo pianist. His music explores the resonating properties of the vibrating piano string – coaxing from it strange, varied sounds that often transcend the generally observed tonal qualities of the instrument. At times his approach borders on the electronic – using acoustically modeled reverbs, distortion, delays, and low frequency oscillations. He conjures a meditative sound world that is both mesmerising and emotional. Chris is about to release his ninth solo album “Fluid to The Influence” on Room 40 records.
Following initial phase of renovations on ISSUE’s downtown Brooklyn theater, the organization returns home in Spring 2016 for a special series of performances utilizing the unique acoustic properties of the space before the final stage of construction begins.
