Josh Cohen: Radiohead for Solo Piano

When

Thursday 27 January from 8:45pm to 9:45pm

Cost

Adult: $39 + BF

One of the world’s most iconic, avant-garde rock bands meets one of Australia’s most adventurous pianists as Radiohead gets reimagined on a grand by Melbourne musician and composer Josh Cohen.  

The classically-trained Cohen knows how to hold an audience captive. Beginning his impressionistic, piano-based covers of the band on YouTube, they quickly went viral, racking up millions of online views. Radiohead – a band famously protective of its reputation – gave its full endorsement to Cohen’s idiosyncratic arrangements, whose songbooks were released by the group’s music publisher.  

From OK Computer to A Moon Shaped Pool and beyond, Cohen’s intricate and improvisational approach pulls the emotional and rhythmic core out of Radiohead’s sound, and reconfigures it as a dance across the keys, more raw and alive than ever. Cohen will be joined for the performance by Joshua Batty of MindBuffer, whose mind-melding visual design are sure to tilt the experience into transcendent territory.
