Inspired by the grand tradition of Viennese chamber music and marking the 185th anniversary of the legendary Bösendorfer piano, Wiencouver X is a new work for piano and strings. Hank Bull plays extended piano in Vienna, while Andrew Lee performs guitar and samples in Vancouver. In the mix are sounds from the Bösendorfer factory, where the craftsmen and women who make the piano considerably extend its acoustic range.
Wiencouver is a virtual city somewhere between Vienna and Vancouver. This work continues a longstanding series of performances linking the two cities.
Hank Bull has been a participant in radio and telecom events since the late 1970s.
Andrew Lee is a musician and visual artist based in Vancouver, Canada.
