Music Research Seminar: Sarah Nicolls

'Interventions: re-designing instruments and being a musician-citizen'

Sarah Nicolls’ talk will cover two topics. First, she will discuss her project to re-design the piano. Covering the background of this project, Sarah will take us into her work with designers and engineers, funded by an array of research bodies, explicitly sharing the challenges and opportunities of cross-disciplinary work. Second, she will share her latest project, ‘Musical Activism’. 2018 saw a slew of shocking headlines about the state of our planet. Sarah will discuss her own response to this and how she works to balance the political and artistic.

* On Tuesday, March 12th, Sarah Nicolls will present the first performance of her new 'musical activism' project at the City, University of London Concert Series. For more information and ticket reservations, click here.
