Add in "Exploding Pianist" Kathleen Supove, known for her use of theatrical elements, vocal rants, performance art, staging, and eclecticism in classical playing, and you're in for a wild ride -- a true electronic music experience. Presented in collaboration with the Extension Division at Mannes College The New School for Music.
