The composer played the piano in a virtual concert hall built for the performance.
Kirill Richter gave a piano recital at the Minecraft online game today, 19 April. The composer’s 3D avatar played his compositions from the Chronos album in the virtual hall.
The performance was broadcast on the Twitch platform. During breaks between performances, the musician communicated with the audience. “This concert is ironic to me in everything that happens. I’m annoyed with online concerts and how unprofessional it all is … That’s why this concert in Minecraft is an ironic response …,” he said. – I think we’re living in a historic moment. I think we’ll all remember that…”
The concert was organized as part of the virtual exhibition “Libertile – Cutting off Extra. Leaving the essence” by the artist Mikhail Tsaturyan. On April 18, the first day of the opening, the following stand-up comics performed on the platform: Yevgeny Chebatkov, Luca Khinikadze, Garik Hovhannisyan, Idrak Mirzalizade, as well as Skemta graham rapper.
The exhibition will be held in Minecraft until May 18 at the virtual campus of DSTU (Don State Technical University). The curator is #DarkART Gallery.
