Nomads Like Us + Magic Steven
Wed 9 Mar
Award winning composer/pianist duo Nomads Like Us present an evocative night of live music.
With support from artist and poet Magic Steven, Nomads Like Us craft a genre bending live set on pianos. Part planned, part improvised, this music is intricate, deep, soulful, sweet, nostalgic, exciting, sometimes eerie and utterly mesmerising. Reminiscent of times past, present and future, Christina Higham and Victoria Cotta create an immersive, cinematic and sublime music and visual experience.
Presented as part of Brunswick Music Festival.
Christina Higham is a post classical composer, pianist and performer based in Brunswick, Naarm. Guided by intuitive improvisation her poignant and expansive piano pieces have captured the imagination of listeners worldwide.
She has released music with NYC label Sonder House, 1631 Recordings and Germany’s Silent Beat Records, and has contributed to compilations and composition projects worldwide. Formed in 2019, Christina also composes and performs as part of award winning collaborative audio visual duo Nomads Like Us.
Victoria Cotta is a multi-instrumentalist whose compositions and performances have taken place across the world. Classically trained, she studied jazz and popular music at university, cultivating a love for music that spans multiple genres.
Her debut album of solo piano compositions spanning 15 years of work was released in 2019. Deeply fascinated by time, space and the metaphysical, she combines the unusual, the beautiful and the intellectual to captivate listeners through her original compositions. Nomads Like Us brings two like minds together, who through the use of collaborative composition and film, create a third mind for audiences to peer into.
