Fresh Sound presents Zeena Parkins
From New York, Zeena Parkins is a pioneer of contemporary harp practice and performance who re-imagines the electric harp as a “sound machine of limitless capacity.” Taking the harp into the realms of the avant-garde, Ms. Parkins will play an improvised set on her unique one-of-a kind electric harp. This night she is unveiling a new set of processors and a custom-made hardware controller designed specifically for her instrument. The new controller consisting of ribbons, buttons, knobs, and switches will allow Parkins a much wider range of processing possibilities and control.
